1808/7 -  O.101 R.1 PCGS AU 55

Ex Henry Hilgard   The strike is exceptional on this early die state.  I note hints of prooflike surfaces under the attractive silver-grey toning.  Luster befits the assigned grade.  Wonderfully smooth surfaces are another bonus.  The consignor acquired the coin in July 1996 directly from my long-time friend and bourse-table assistant, Henry Hilgard.  Henry had a keen eye for quality.  Our joint mentor, Elton Dosier, taught us to be on the lookout for coins that were well struck with original surfaces.  This 1808/7 is a classic example.   Estimate: $2,500 to $3,000
