Only early die states of the O.102 die pair feature the experimental XXX edge. Note the sharp dentils and high rims on this high-grade coin. Soft luster supports the AU designation. The coin is evenly toned with subtle iridescence through the legend. A short drift mark (mint-made of course) rises from the crevice of the eagle’s left wing. From Heritage’s Oct. 2015 New York Sale, lot 4517 where it realized $2,585. Est. $2,000 to $3,000.
