1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.113a R.4 PCGS Gold Shield MS 63+

Spectacular cobalt blue toning surrounds the portrait.  The reverse flaunts an original, iridescent golden patina.  Intense luster bathes the fields and devices.  But for a vertical mark on the neck the coin might have earned gem status.  Dr. Link found the coin in an NGC MS 64 capsule in Heritage’s April 2012 Central States Sale, lot 4424, where it sold for $2,760.  (NGC label accompanies.)  Feast your eyes on the detail in Liberty’s curls and the eagle’s feathers and talons.  No detail is missing.  The PCGS label notes the attribution and Link provenance.

Estimate: $2,200 to $2,500
