A new discovery! The 1828 O.105 and 1827 O.124 (preceding lot) are of comparable rarity, the former having perhaps a few more examples in its scant population. In high grade the 1828 O.105 is uncommonly rare. Herrman traces but two uncirculated examples, placing Stew Witham’s PCGS MS 62 at the top. This AU 58 example is a comfortable resident in the Condition Census. Light russet toning circles the stars and legend. The brilliant centers flaunt the coin’s original allotment of mint luster. The reverse is unc. The obverse with a bit of cabinet friction. No contact marks deserve mention. There can be no argument over the AU 58 designation. Another important coin, ready to enhance an important die variety collection.
Estimate: $4,000 to $6,000
