1823 Patched 3 -  O.101a R.1 PCGS MS 63

From the collection of Keith Davignon; earlier in that of Dr. Charles Link, noted on the PCGS label.  This is a fabulous coin -- original through and through.  Caky luster fires an ancient patina of grey, gold and iridescent turquoise.  The “look” of the coin is unlike 99% (even more, truth be told) of those seen today.  It tells us that it was set aside shortly after leaving the mint and has been lovingly cared for by generations of collectors.  Preview is a must, if only for one’s numismatic education.  Keith pried this one out of Chuck during the March 2016 Baltimore Show.  Est. $9,000 to $12,000.
