1818 -  O.111 R.1 PCGS MS 62

Ex Louis Eliasberg   Ex J.M. Clapp, Louis Eliasberg, Russ Logan, Dick Graham, Keith Davignon   Eliasberg provenance noted on the PCGS label.  Last offered in MB 52, lot 100, landing at $9,075, to end a battle among several collectors.  Strictly uncirculated with immaculate surfaces, a strong candidate for “upgrade.”  Beautifully toned: the smooth blanket of iridescent grey sparkles with green and gold undertones.  The strike is first rate.  Russ Logan purchased the coin at the Eliasberg II Sale, April 1997, lot 1754 as MS 63.  Logan’s tag notes an earlier provenance: J.M. Clapp, M.A. Brown and the Chapman Bros.  Dick Graham purchased the coin from your cataloguer shortly after I acquired it at the Nov. 2002 Logan Sale, lot 2354.  Keith Davignon became the next owner in January 2010, via private treaty.  Graham’s, Logan’s and my personal tags accompany the lot along with the B&M tag from the Logan Sale.  In short, a marvelous coin with a peerless provenance.   Estimate: $5,000 and up
