1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.121 R.4 PCGS AU 55 CAC

The 1827 O.121 is an underrated rarity.  If your die variety set lacks an example you have company.  The obverse die appears on the O.122 and 123, noted R.5 rarities.  Perhaps their kinship has turned the O.121 into a stepchild.  In all events, here is your chance to land a quality example.  The lovely toning is unquestionably original and has a depth to it usually seen on select or gem unc bust halves.  Contact marks on Liberty’s neck are the sole distraction and may account for the modest grade.  A pretty one!  From a May 1991 Stack’s auction.  

Estimate: $1,000 to $1,500
