1814 E/A -  O.108a R.1 PCGS Shield AU 55


Another Red Book condition rarity - though “R.1” to die variety collectors.  Why are there so few AU or nicer examples?  I don’t have the answer.  This untoned example sports extravagant luster, obverse and reverse.  Weakness at the eagle’s head and left wing is a hallmark of the variety and stark contrast to the well-detailed obverse portrait.  Unless you find clash marks a bother, you will adore the nearly mark-free surfaces.  It was last offered by David Kahn in 2009.  The similarly graded example in MB 45, lot 14, ex Jules Reiver, brought $6,655.  Be ready for a battle!   Estimate: $3,500 to $5,000
