1818/7 Large 8 -  O.101a R.1 PCGS AU 58 CAC

Meyer provenance noted on PCGS label. From MB 50, lot 41 @ $2,420.  An intensely lustrous coin, mostly brilliant with hints of gold toning on the obverse.  Swampy found the coin in an NGC AU 58 holder at the April 2000 Central States Show.  It subsequently crossed to PCGS and was offered in Heritage’s April 2009 CSNS sale, lot 681 ($1,955).  The CAC sticker came later.  Well deserved, I should add.  Have you read Jim Ross’ article in the Nov. 2018 J.R. Journal where he traces the obverse die to 1813, making the coin an 1818/7/3?   Estimate: $2,500 to $3,000
