1802 -  O.101, T-1 R.3 PCGS XF 45 CAC

A charming companion to the preceding 1801.  Antique auburn toning heralds a coin with original surfaces.  The 1801 and 1802 are of comparable rarity.  Most seen have been “played with.”  Here is a nice exception.  Even wear, with flickers of luster in protected areas, and a balanced strike mark this coin for a high-grade set.  A comparable CAC-approved PCGS XF 45 sold last December in Legend’s Las Vegas auction, lot 108.  It brought $13,513.  PCGS, CAC and Greysheet price guides suggest $11,000+.  From Heritage’s 2017 FUN Show sale, lot 4157 at $8,225.  Estimate: $9,000 to $11,500.
