1819/8 Lg.9 -  O.103a R.4 PCGS MS 62


From the collection of Dr. Charles Link.  Outrageous eye appeal.  The intensely lustrous centers are surrounded by rings of electric copper and turquoise toning.  Purists will note a touch of cabinet friction on the portrait.  It would, nonetheless, be a crime to deny the coin a Mint State designation.  Six die pairs comprise the overdates of 1819, O.101 through O.106.  The O.103a die state is the scarcest of the lot and invariably brings a premium.  It is the poster-child for PCGS CoinFacts: https://www.pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/1819-8-50c-overton-103a-large-9/39558The coin may be traced to the “College Collection,” offered by Heritage in its Aug. 2015 Chicago ANA Sale, lot 4955 as PCGS AU 58 CAC, bringing $5,405.  PCGS currently suggests $7,000 as the starting point for any 1819/8 graded MS 62.  Est. $4,750 to $6,500
