1814 -  O.107 Prime R.7? PCGS XF 45

An important coin for the die state enthusiast.  High rims, crisp dentils and squared-off devices announce an early die state.  Distinct recutting of the 4 and the first 1 in the date provide confirmation.  Note, also, the absence of the ubiquitous die chip in N of UNITED.  Herrman identifies but two auction offerings and suggests an R.7 rarity rating.  The untoned coin exhibits luster in protected areas.  The surfaces were gently wiped.  I have not seen or handled a prime 1814 O.107 since 2007.  It is worth remembering that this die pair, in a later die state, was used to strike the platinum half-dollars of 1814.   Estimate: $ ????
