Ex Louis Eliasberg and Dr. Charles Link. A special coin on two counts. The Eliasberg provenance triggers immediate interest. Perhaps more important is the impressive strike. Liberty’s curls and drapery folds are fully struck. The same goes for the eagle’s claws and feathers. All thirteen stars strut their center points. Unbroken luster flows across the surfaces. The coin is lightly toned with minimal signs of contact. In all, a very special 1808.
Estimate: $5,000 to $6,000
