1817 -  O.103a R.2 PCGS AU 55 CAC

Ex Charlton E. Meyer, Jr.   A conservative grade.  Frosty luster is unbroken in the fields of this exciting coin.  A whisper of friction crosses Liberty’s cheek.  Charlton Meyer won the coin in a July 1976 New Netherlands Coin Company auction (lot 178), then run by Charles Wormser and John J. Ford, pillars of the numismatic world from the 1940s until 1988.  The coin was understandably offered as “uncirculated.”  After I sold the Meyer collection in 2008-2009, Tim found the coin in a January 2010 Heritage auction, lot 3438.  The Meyer provenance is noted on the PCGS label.   Estimate: $1,200 to $1,500
