1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.145 R.5 PCGS AU 55

Ex Elton Dosier and Gehring Prouty.   Another of Elton’s voluminous cherry picks and a delightful companion to the preceding O.144.  How nice it would be to keep the coins together.  Gehring Prouty acquired both coins in 1997 when I granted his request for “first shot” at Elton’s coins.  Tim put this coin in his “Top-10” list at the 2000 ANA Convention in Philadelphia where I displayed and offered the Prouty Collection.  It was “raw” when Tim bought it.  It graded AU 58 when he sent it to NGC.  It crossed to PCGS as AU 55.  (The NGC label accompanies this lot.)  Little wear is seen on the coin.  Even, steel-grey toning blankets the exceptionally smooth, lustrous surfaces.    Estimate: $3,000 to $3,500
