1813 -  O.106 R.3 PCGS Gold Shield MS 61

Link provenance noted on the label.  Silver-grey toning with decently impressed curls and wing feathers.  But what happened to the tip of the bust and the left side of the legend and motto opposite?  We can only guess.  The striking abnormality is a hallmark of the O.106.  (Compare the Overton plate coin for another example.)  In all other respects the coin meets our expectation of a mint state coin: full luster and no signs of actual circulation.  Dr. Link found the coin in a Sept. 2012 Heritage auction; it brought $3,290 in a PCGS “rattler.”   

Estimate: $2,700 to $3,200
