1828 Curl 2, No Knob -  O.101 Prime R.? PCGS AU 55


From the collection of Dr. Charles Link, noted on the PCGS label.  A vast majority of this die pair come with a chip in the F of OF.  In their attribution guides Overton and Peterson note that a few `28-101’s lack the chip.  I’m not sure that I’ve handled an example.  Certainly not recently.  Here is a true prime O.101: die lines are below the bust, the die chip is missing and the surfaces retain hints of a prooflike quality.  An important offering for students of the series.  Oh, the coin is lovely!  Pale rose and silver toning, lots of luster and nice surfaces.   Est. $800 and up.
