1817/3 - O.101/101a R.2 PCGS AU 55 CAC
From the Long Island Collection. Intermediate die state with the “look” of an early die state. Note the stars, all with center-points, and the crisp, well-defined dentils. Iridescent shades of blue and gold toning boost already strong eye appeal. Luster dances beneath the toning, virtually unbroken in the fields. Here is a coin on the cusp of AU 55 and AU 58. A CAC sticker provides confirmation. The coin’s last appearance was at Stack’s March 1990 sale, lot 111. The auction tag accompanies. Est. $4,500 to $5,500.
