1830 Sm.0 -  O.109 R.4+ PCGS OGH AU 55 CAC


The latest BHNC revision of Overton’s rarity ratings added a + to the R.4 status of this die pair. I was surprised to see how few examples have appeared at auction in recent years.  Caky luster is unbroken beneath a protective patina of steel-grey.  A toning spot next to the date and a little color at the rims inside stars 1-5 are minor exceptions.  This one has been Tim’s set piece for over 30 years.  He acquired it at a Teletrade auction in January 1990.   

Estimate: $750 to $1,000
