1836 Bar Dot -  O.121 R.5+ PCGS XF 40 CAC

Ex Jim Ross, via John Tidwell circa 2001.   Truly, a “killer” R.5.  I’ve cherried one in 35+ years of searching.  The population is 40 something.  This is a lovely example.  The natural toning favors cobalt blue on the reverse and deeper shades of rose on the obverse.  The die state is as late as I’ve seen.  Yet all dentils are visible.  The surfaces are exquisite for the grade.  No marks deserve mention.  Here is a prize for the serious collector. Est. $2,000 to $3,000.
