1823 Patched 3 -  O.102 R.4 PCGS AU 58

From the collection of Keith Davignon.  Same obverse, different reverse than the preceding Patched 3 - and in a different league when it comes to rarity.  Herrman’s AMBPR lists only one auction appearance of an AU 58 over the past 10 or more years.  (Lot 81 in my Aug. 2017 MB 45 @ $6,000.)  The O.102 die marriage is distinctly rare in all grades, scandalously so in high grade.  AU examples with strong eye appeal may be counted on the fingers of one hand and you won’t need all your fingers.  This lovely example displays cartwheel luster under an original blanket of antique toning.  The surfaces are uncommonly smooth save for an inconsequential tick near Liberty’s mouth.  For die variety collectors this is a r-a-r-e opportunity.  Keith acquired the coin at the Jan. 2010 FUN Show in a trade with Dr. Link, giving up his finest known 1808 O.110 R.5.  Est. $5,500 to $6,500
