1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.124 R.5 PCGS XF 40

Ex Troy Nelson   One of several “stoppers” in the daunting quest to complete a die variety set of 1827’s.  This die pair started life as “R.8” in Overton’s early editions.  Over the last 50+ years, the rarity rating dropped to R.5.  It takes but one hand to count the number of high-grade pieces.  CAC-approved examples are exceedingly rare.  I recall handling only one other, a PCGS XF 45 in 2019 that sold for $3,3630.  This is Troy Nelson’s (Allgood Collection) set piece, offered by Heritage in January 2011, lot 3703 at $2,185.  The coin is lightly toned, free of significant marks and sports a fair amount of luster.  A quality coin for a first-class die variety collection.   Estimate: $2,000 and up
