1818/7 Sm. 8 -  O.102a R.2 PCGS AU 58 CAC


Cartwheel luster rolls beneath a handsome veneer of pale gold toning.  Signs of actual circulation are missing.  The small 8 overdate of 1818 is generally considered a tougher die pair than either of the large 8 varieties, O.101 and O.103.   The O.102 die was almost certainly prepared by Robert Scott (no notch in star 13); John Reich’s failing eyesight led to his retirement in 1817.  Est. $3,000 to $3,500.
