Ex Richard Pugh and Dr. Gerald Schertz Early die state, confirmed by die lines under star 13 and the nicely detailed central devices. Luster in the fields matches that between the stars and in other protected areas. Translation: the coin saw little if any actual circulation and has not been fussed with. A pretty coin with a nice provenance. Dr. Schertz picked it up at Superior’s May/June 1992 sale of Richard Pugh’s collection (lot 1402 @ $176). In July 1994 I placed it in MB No. 12 (lot 79) where Tim prevailed at $220. It won’t hurt to study the obverse of this die pair. It appears again on the R.8 1829 O.120, married to a different reverse.
Estimate: $600 to $700
