1820/19 Curl Base 2 -  O.102 R.1 PCGS AU 58


An interesting coin.  Stone grey toning, obverse and reverse, with full cartwheel luster on the obverse and distinctly prooflike surfaces on the reverse.  Minor ticks from short term circulation may have denied this one a CAC sticker.  It is an old friend.  I purchased it at a Heritage auction in 2014 and sold it to the current consignor.  Though more common than its square base 2 sibling, no high grade 1820, overdate or not, is to be ignored.  Only the 1807 and 1815 mintages are lower in the Capped Bust series.  Six of the eight Overton die varieties are also Red Book varieties.  Estimate: $3,500 to $4,000
