From the collection of Keith Davignon. A grey-dirt (or, if you like, “pearl-grey”) coin with luster a mile deep. Contact marks are insignificant. The original look of the coin will appeal to all. The PCGS label notes the Overton variety as well as the Dr. Charles Link provenance. Davignon acquired the coin at Legend’s March 2017 sale (lot 81 @ $4,400). Dr. Link found it in Heritage’s Aug. 2012 ANA Sale (lot 3379 @ $4.406) where its provenance was traced to the Gary G. Walker Collection offered by Heritage in July 2003. Faint oval indentations above the eagle’s head suggest that the coin was struck through stray bits of very thin material. They are a mere curiosity, nearly invisible to the naked eye and of no consequence in valuing the coin. Est. $4,000 to $4,500.
