1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.124 R.5+ PCGS XF 45 CAC

An even tougher die pair than the preceding O.123.  The typical `27-O.124 is worn, poorly impressed and ugly. This one needs no apology.  CAC shares my opinion that it is solid for the grade and of superior eye appeal.  The smooth surfaces are naturally toned.  Gentle luster is not limited to protected areas but rolls through the fields.  I last offered this coin (“raw”) in Nov. 1999 as lot 131 of MB 24.  I suggested a grade of XF 40+, adding, “This may be my favorite coin in the auction.  I am a sucker for original coins.”  It sold to the current consignor for $5,035.  Est. $2,500 and up.
