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-9/39558. The 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
