1818 -  O.108 R.1 PCGS AU 58 CAC


The “pincher 8s” variety, featuring a gap in the top loops of the 8s.  Traces of friction on the cheek, breast and feathers, as expected for a “58.”  Luster is unbroken in the fields.  A uniform layer of “grey dirt” has protected the surfaces for countless decades.  Tim uncovered the coin at the August 2015 ANA Convention.

Estimate: $2,000 to $3,000
