1814 Misaligned Die -  O.107 R.2 VF/XF

Ex Stewart Witham and Russell Logan 
Henry’s note: Misaligned die, about 5%, with the obverse being struck off center.   Purchased by me from the Russell J. Logan collection auctioned by Bowers and Merena Galleries November 6-9, 2002, lot# 2317, where it sold for $862.50.  In the sale catalog, the description says simply “Struck 5% off center at 6:30” and the photo accompanying the lot does not match the coin.  Earlier from Stu Witham to Russ Logan in April 1992.  

A dramatic example of the error, with an unbeatable provenance.  Silver-grey toning with underlying hairlines.  

Estimate: $750 to $1,000
