1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.140 R.4 PCGS AU 53

This die pair is among the toughest R.4s in any grade.  In high grade it is a distinct rarity.  I recall handling but one mint state example (PCGS MS 63, MB 23, lot 93, Feb. 1999 – to Charles De Olden).  The Oertel coin is blessed with iridescent album toning through the stars and legend.  It offers the coveted triumvirate: rarity, high grade and eye appeal.  If you have chased die marriages for a few years you know when to have patience and when to pounce.  Enough said.

Estimate: $800 to $1,200
