1806/5 -  O.101, T-6 R.3 PCGS XF 45 CAC

The glossy, original patina will catch the eye of experienced collectors.  Tim did not let this one pass by when it appeared in a December 2013 offering of a dealer best known for his inventory of Morgan Dollars.  Light contact marks under the ribbon are camouflaged by the antique toning.  The surfaces are otherwise smooth.  A faint die break connects the tops of ITE in the legend, presaging a rarely seen rim cud on the (R.7) O.101a.  Striking weakness at the tip of the eagle’s left wing contrasts with the nicely detailed central devices.  Note, especially, Liberty’s curls, drapery lines and the eagle’s breast feathers.

Estimate: $2,200 to $2,500
