1824 -  O.113 R.2 NGC MS 61

A horizonal die line crosses the upturned curl of the 2 in the date.  I had not noticed this feature of early die states until Jack Beymer called it to my attention a few years ago.  We wondered whether there could be another digit under the 2.  Alas, no.  Probably just a short scratch in the die that soon disappeared.  It remains a useful identifier of the 24-113 in its earliest die state.  The coin exhibits soft luster throughout, stronger at the peripheries.  A blanket of pastel gold toning warms the surfaces.

Note: Hard copies of the catalog incorrectly show this lot as O.101.  It is O.113.

Estimate: $900 to $1,200
