1819/8 Lg. 9 -  O.102 R.1 PCGS "rattler" XF 45

Housed in a first generation PCGS holder known today as a “rattler.”  (Coins tended to rattle as they moved around inside the capsule.)  PCGS overlooked the overdate, labeling the coin “1819.”  Heritage also missed the overdate when it offered this coin in the Internet session of its Long Beach Sale, Sept. 2012, lot 8387 @ $,1,527.50.  Gorgeous toning sparkles with underlying luster.  The holder has a few blemishes, notably at 6 o’clock on the reverse, through 50 C, and across the shield.  The coin is unscathed and will almost certainly earn an AU designation should the next owner choose to reholder it.  One can only wish that all XF 45s were this nice!  To be in the hunt, treat this treasure as a nice AU 1819/8.  

Estimate:  $1,300 to $1,750
