Coin Facts Plate Coin - Condition Census The Link provenance is displayed on the label. Dr. Link spotted this one on eBay in July 2006. It was housed in an NGC MS 64 capsule. He accepted a modest demotion when crossing the coin to PCGS. Only 2 finer specimens from this die pair are known: the Eliasberg gem and an NGC MS 65 in the Overton Collection. Both are attributed as O.106a, leaving the Link coin as the No.1 example of its die state and No. 3 overall. Floyd Farley coined the descriptor “grey dirt.” Here is a wonderful example. Caky luster rolls under the protective patina. The surfaces are blemish-free. A magical 1810.
Estimate: $6,000 to $8,000
