This gorgeous 1810 brought $5,405 6+ years ago at Heritage’s 2015 Fun Show sale, lot 4839. AMBPR lists a Condition Census that ranges from MS 62 to MS 64. (A pair of PCGS MS 64 examples sold for $17,400 and $19,975 in 2016 and 2019.) Lightly toned, darker at the rims. Pleasing surfaces and all the luster one expects of a “62.” The rim pinch above star 8 is mint made, a result of the planchet falling just short of a 180° turn in the edge lettering device. Scarce as hen’s teeth is the appropriate adage attached to mint state 1810s. Most seen are O.101, 102 or 103. Here is a prize for the advanced collector.
Estimate: $4,000 and up
