Ex Dr. Gerald Schertz. The combination of delightful rose and gold toning and exceptional luster earned this 1812 a CAC sticker. Tim acquired it in July 1994 when selections from two notable die variety collections were offered in Mail Bid Sale #12. This was lot 24, part of Dr. Gerald Schertz’ collection. (Ivan Leaman, DDS was the other major consignor.) Dr. Schertz’ notes confirmed a 1983 acquisition but not the source. Wear is confined to the high points; there are virtually no signs of contact with other coins.
Estimate: $800 to $1,100
