1818 -  O.104'b' R.5? PCGS Gold Shield MS 63

Ex Don Frederick.  Lot 2990 from the Frederick sale.  (See lots 72-73.)  A heavy die crack from the rim above star 7 into cap and a thin die break through stars 8 to 13 mark the terminal state of the obverse die.  The latter die break was unknown to Overton; examples with the star 8-13 die break carry a rarity estimate of R.5 in the latest edition of Herrman’s AMBPR.  The Frederick-Link coin is the finest known.  (Once again PCGS omitted Frederick’s name from the updated holder.)  Heritage was succinct and accurate in its description: This splendid Mint State piece has frosty silver luster beneath light ivory at the centers, with deep steel peripheral toning [and] has exceptional eye appeal for the grade. 

Estimate: $3,500 to $4,500
