This seriously rare die state is hallmarked by a thin, jagged die break, star 6 to bust and a heavy break through STATES OF AMERICA. Herrman’s AMBPR and Rutherford’s Prices Realized identify just two PCGS graded AU specimens, the Tidwell-Prouty AU 58 last offered in 2004 and an AU 53 sold by Heritage in 2017. Full luster rolls across the surfaces of this high grade coin. Friction is confined to high points. The surfaces are smooth save for clash marks, the referenced die breaks and a pair of light scuffs in front of Liberty’s nose.
Estimate: $2,000 and up
