Ex Don Frederick. Magnificent toning is a welcome bonus on this established rarity. It was lot 2967 in Heritage’s April 2010 sale of the Frederick Collection, where the cataloguer properly extolled both the luster and colorful toning. Dr. Link prevailed at a bargain price, $1,610. He had the coin reholdered sometime thereafter. PCGS inadvertently omitted the Frederick provenance but added Dr. Link’s name to the label. This early die state comes with only 1 reverse die crack, from the rim through R in AMERICA to the right wing.
Estimate: $1,800 to $2,200
