1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.144 R.5+ PCGS Gold Shield AU 58

Ex Dr. Charles Link, noted on the PCGS label.  This Condition Census piece last traded hands in November 2008.  The private treaty sale is recorded in Steve Herrman’s latest AMBPR ($14,000).  It went unsold in my 2015 ANA Sale.  Dr. Link modestly considered it the 3rd finest known of this seriously rare variety, behind Gehring Prouty’s miraculous MS 64 and the Meyer/Davignon example, graded AU 58 by both NGC and PCGS.  The obverse features full (slightly subdued) luster beneath a grey and pale charcoal patina.  The especially attractive reverse is a bit lighter, with cartwheel luster.  

Estimate: $11,000 and up
