1807 Small Stars -  O.113a R.2 PCGS AU 58

This breathtaking 1807 last appeared in MB 51, lot 2, where I offered this description:
Crisp dentils, sharp stars and well struck centers, save for a hint of weakness in the eagle’s left wing: a rare grouping for this erratically struck issue.  Evenly toned, obverse and reverse, with subtle hints of iridescent cobalt blue, turquoise and related hues.  A faint drift mark on Liberty’s cheek will identify the coin for posterity.  The small and large star varieties of 1807 are extraordinarily rare in this lofty grade.  The last O.113a in AU 58 to be offered at auction was lot 4881 in Heritage’s 2018 ANA auction.  It brought over $17,000.  Our consignor acquired this example by private treaty.  I find no record of it appearing at auction.

Estimate: $9,000 and up
