1818/7 Large 8 -  O.101 R.1 PCGS AU 58

Ex Tom Sears   Riveting eye-appeal and luster.  The flashy, untoned centers are framed by iridescent turquoise and russet toning.  Liberty’s curls and the eagle’s feathers and talons are boldly impressed.  The surfaces are free of distractions.  I note a hint of cabinet friction on the cheek.  Tom found the coin in Jason Carter’s case during the 2002 summer ANA Convention.  It was in an ANACS MS 62 capsule. The demotion at PCGS must have been a disappointment though it did allow Tom to include the coin in his award-winning Everyman Registry Set of Capped Bust Half-Dollars.  The coin traded hands 2 years ago at $3,500 and should bring that or more today  

Estimate: $3,000 to $3,500
