1806 Pt. 6, Lg. Stars -  O.110 R.6- PCGS Genuine, VF Details

If you collect the pre-turbs you know this die pair, usually appearing with an obverse die break, rim to Liberty’s lips.  In the 1980s Richard Pugh liked to call it the Elephant Trunk 1806, a moniker that we old-timers recall.  It is the only pointed-6 1806 with Large Stars.  The dark toning almost – but not quite – hides hairlines from an ancient cleaning.  View this blemish as a blessing: without it the coin would sell for $5,000 or more.   Estimate: $1,500 to $2,500
