Iridescent turquoise and copper toning at the rims fades to soft russet in the centers – exactly what we expect from coins stored in a Wayte Raymond holder. Luster survives in protected areas. The O.108 is an underrated rarity. It takes no more than one hand for me to count the examples that I’ve cherried over the past 38 years. This is an honest, attractive, problem-free example that Tim found irresistible when he acquired it from Eye Appealing Coins in February 2012.
Estimate: $500 to $700
