1810 -  O.105 R.2 PCGS AU 55 OGH CAC

Tim spotted this one in my May 1996 Mail Bid #17 (lot 3).  It is in the same Green Label holder today, recently adorned with a CAC green bean.  Cartwheel luster spins under an antique grey patina.  Floyd Farley would have glanced at the coin and announced, “Grey Dirt.”  If submitted for grading today the outcome would be a coin toss between “55” and “58.”  Twenty-five years ago I offered this cursory description:  Fully original.  A handsome coin that saw brief circulation before being put away and properly tended these past 186 years.  

Estimate: $1,500 to $2,000
