Also from The Long Island Collection, with the same look and eye appeal as the preceding 1807: brilliant centers with halos of album toning and a touch of friction on the cheek and neck. The coin never saw circulation. The familiar obverse die break runs from below the date to the rim above Liberty’s cap. The coin was acquired many years ago as “MS 60+.” It would be nice to see it remain in the same cabinet as the 1807. Est. $3,500 to $4,500.
