1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.132 R.3 PCGS AU 58 CAC


Ex Charlton E. Meyer, Jr.  Meyer provenance noted on label.  Swampy found this one in 1972 at a small show in Alexandria, VA. The captivating luster and eye-appeal are such that he probably saw it when he walked in the door!  The coin is essentially unchanged from the day it left the screw press in 1827.  The strike is a marvel.  Feast on the details in Liberty’s curls, the stars, the eagle’s claws, etc.  Truly an ideal coin for the date or type collector.  

Estimate: $1,200 to $1,500
