1820 Lg. Date, Sq. Base 2, No Knob -  O.106 R.1 PCGS Shield AU 58


Extremely early die state, sharply impressed and prooflike!  The usual bulge in the obverse die, from bust to stars 1-2, is absent.   An earlier NGC label accompanies, “AU 58 PL.”  The coin is untoned with cabinet friction and lightly disturbed fields but exhibits no sign of having entered circulation.  The mirror-like surfaces showcase extraordinary detail in the dentils and central devices.  Note, particularly, the eagle’s wings and claws.  I find no record of the coin having appeared at auction.   Estimate: $2,750 to $3,500
