1829 -  O.104 R.5+ PCGS XF 45

Ex Dr. Charles Link, noted on the PCGS label.  The `29-104 is a scarce die pair; most seen come with die chips, causing the tops of A1 and A2 to be filled.  These die chips hallmark the O.104a – a scarce die state.  The early or “prime” die state, offered here, is seen less often.  Its rarity rating is R.5+.  This example is simply perfect for the grade.  The strike is balanced, the toning natural and the surfaces are without problems.  A lesser quality NGC XF 45 appeared in MB 43, lot 64, Aug. 2016.  It brought $990.  I’ve not handled an example since then.  Est. $800 to $1,200.
