Ex Jules Reiver. A stunning coin. Richly toned in vibrant shades of gold and pale blue atop a thoroughly original antique grey patina. The coin is utterly free of distractions. This was lot 22711 in Heritage’s Jan. 2006 sale of the Reiver Collection. (I was the buyer at $1,495.) The coin was housed in an NGC AU 58 capsule and attributed as O.107. I landed on O.107a, recognizing the coin to be an intermediate die state. It hardly matters. The selling point remains eye appeal! Est. $1,500 to $2,000.
