1818 -  O.112 Prime R.6? PCGS AU 55 CAC

Smooth, “hard” surfaces (frequently seen on very early die states) with a protective grey-dirt patina.  Nearly full luster.  No marks deserve mention.  Nearly all from this die pair come with a die break on the reverse, below the denomination and up through UNITED.  When struck from perfect dies, as here, Steve Herrman’s AMBPR suggests a rarity rating of R.6, 13 to 30 pieces known.  I’ve handled but one other “prime,” an XF example.  This important coin may be the finest known of its ilk; its pedigree includes the collection of BHNC member David Kahn. Est. $1,000 to $2,000.
