1811 Sm. 8 -  O.112 R.4- PCGS AU 53 CAC

The PCGS label incorrectly attributes the coin as O.112a, an R.5 subvariety.  Heritage overlooked the error when offering this coin in its Feb. 2018 Long Beach Sale of Chris Merrill’s collection.  (Lot 4587 @ $2,160.)  That said, the die pair is still worth a premium as a sticky R.4-.  Natural grey toning, soft luster and an attractive halo of iridescence earned this one a CAC sticker.  Merrill acquired the coin in Stack’s Nov. 2009 Anniversary sale, lot 1375.

Estimate: $1,000 to $1,300
