1814 -  O.106a R.4 PCGS MS 63

Ex Dr. Charles Link.  Second finest known of this noted rarity.  An MS 64 with CAC approval appeared last summer in the Beaver Falls Collection.  Dr. Charles Link did not allow it to escape.  He rewarded us with this remarkable “dupe.”  The obverse strike, of course, reflects striking weakness brought on by the monstrous reverse die break.  This invariably confuses the grading services.  Intense luster glows under the antique toning.  I have handled a pair of PCGS graded MS 62s, the Meyer coin in 2008 and the Davignon example in 2015.  Both sold for just short of $7,000, testaments to the rarity of this issue.  Here is a showpiece coin for the advanced collector.   Estimate: $9,000 and up
