1820/19 Sq. Base 2 -  O.101a R.3 PCGS AU 58

From the Doug Noblet Collection, earlier in the renowned collection of Roger Solomon.  This was lot 38 in my Aug. 2011 sale of the Solomon Collection: An exquisitely detailed specimen, the central obverse features attractive pale gold toning, surrounded by a halo of colorful iridescence.  The reverse is brilliant with light toning through the denomination and legend.  Hairlines will be found under the obverse toning; the reverse surfaces are fully lustrous with minor contact marks and no hairlines. … From Heritage’s 1994 ANA Sale, lot 5363 where offered raw as MS 60 and described as follows: 1820/19 MS 60. O-101, R.2. Satiny surfaces peer out from beneath the olive-gold toned surfaces of this coin. Darker burnt-gold and steel-blue colors appear near the peripheries. The reverse appears brighter and has slightly less color than the obverse.  Roger Solomon prevailed at what was then a strong price, $1,045.  Est. $3,500 to $4,500.
