1805 -  O.104a R.6 PCGS VF 30

Ex Donald Frederick, Charlton E. Meyer, Jr. and Dr. Charles Link.  Meyer provenance noted on the label.  A charismatic rarity from the draped bust series.  A massive cud encases the outer points of stars 9-11, foretelling an early demise of the obverse die.  (Tompkins die state 4.)  Light, even grey toning with scattered hairlines and hints of luster hugging a few letters in the legend.   Meyer pried the coin loose from Frederick in 1978.  It sold for $6,750 when offered at my sale of the Meyer Collection during the July 2008 ANA Convention and has been off the market since then.  I know of but one example graded higher than this example.  

Estimate: $5,000 and up
