A killer R.5. And Red Book variety to boot. The 1830 Large Letters and 1812/1 Large 8 share this dubious, dual distinction. The coin is optimistically graded. It is softly impressed, not unusual for this rarity, with light grey toning, darker through the legend. The surfaces were lightly polished and exhibit a few marks, none serious. Sharfman plucked the coin from my Fixed Price List in February 2015.
Estimate: $3,000 to $3,500
