1828 Sm. Let. Rev. - O.119 R.3 PCGS AU 58 CAC
Another happy surprise for the consignor. Though only R.3, this Red Book staple is awash with suitors. Check your AMBPR. No CAC approved 58’s appeared at auction during the last 5 years. An AU 55 with a green bean brought $3,685 in my Jan. 2017 FUN Show sale. Deep, vibrant luster encases the fields and devices. Contact marks are virtually non-existent. Minuscule flyspecks on the obverse confirm the originality of the coin and, of course, did not concern either PCGS or CAC. Est. $2,000 and up.
