Swirling obverse die breaks hallmark this scarce die pair. Natural medium grey toning softens the underlying luster. The PCGS label references the M.J. Sullivan collection and incorrectly attributes the coin as O.112a. From Heritage’s January 2015 Long Beach Sale, lot 7416, at $2,350. This die pair earns a well-deserved premium. The PCGS price guide conservatively suggests $1,200.
Estimate: $1,000 to $1,500
