1814 Single Leaf - O.105a R.4 PCGS Gold Shield AU 50 CAC
A trio of CAC approved AU 50 to 55 1814 Single Leafs have appeared at auction over the past 4 years, selling between $3,850 and $6,325. This coin is in that elite group. It brought $3,850 in my Jan. 2020 FUN Show sale, MB 50, lot 32, with the following description: A perfect coin for the grade. The obverse fields are free of contact or clash marks – most unusual. The light tan patina is both original and attractive. Aside from Keith Davignon’s marvelous AU 55, I cannot recall handling a CAC approved 1814 AU Single Leaf. This is a pretty one.
Estimate: $3,000 to $4,000
