1824/1 -  O.101a R.2 PCGS MS 64


From the collection of Dr. Charles Link, earlier in the legendary collection of Louis Eliasberg.  The Link/Eliasberg provenance is noted on the PCGS label.  This was lot 1799 in the April 1997 Eliasberg Sale, bringing $4,840 (to the late Martin Paul in partnership with Ron Karp).  The Eliasberg coins were stored in an environment that was not conducive to colorful toning.  The “Eliasberg look” today suggests a pristine coin with undisturbed luster beneath a silver-grey patina.  Here is an example. The surfaces are gem quality.  A bit of toning is seen inside the shield and at the rim between STATES OF.  In short, a wonderful coin with a wonderful provenance.  Est. $8,000 to $10,000.
