1811 Sm. 8 -  O.112a R.5 PCGS AU 50 CAC

In hand this R.5 rarity is as pretty as its picture.  Struck from worn dies, the obverse with swirling die breaks, it is a first order challenge to find an O.112a with decent eye appeal.  This beautifully toned example is a marvel.  A contact mark between the eagle’s left wing and neck is the sole distraction.  Tim found the coin in a Superior Galleries auction back in October 1990.

Estimate: $1,200 to $2,000
