1827 Sq. Base 2 - O.123 R.5 PCGS AU 55 CAC
More caviar! R.5’s just don’t come this nice. Full cartwheel luster – not dazzling, not muted, but all there. Subtle toning embraces the left obverse field and stars. The reverse is brighter. A graze at Liberty’s nose is a solid identifier of this important coin. I find no record of it appearing at auction. Recently released from a northeastern collection. Est. $2,000 to $3,000.
