1818 -  O.115a R.4 PCGS AU 50

Everybody’s favorite 1818!  The heavy, bisecting obverse die break mimics damage and has led more than one collector astray.  High grade pieces are rare.  Herrman posts a Condition Census that includes but one mint state coin, with an AU 53 at #5.  Here is a pretty AU.  For once the obverse is the favored side, blessed with a halo of iridescent turquoise toning.  Dave Kahn passed this important coin to Tim at the 2012 FUN show.   Estimate: $4,000 and up
