1818/7 Small 8 -  O.102a R.2 PCGS AU 58 CAC

Deep, undisturbed cartwheel luster rolls beneath a pleasing veneer of pale gold toning.  Signs of actual circulation are missing.  The 1818/7 with a small 8 is generally considered tougher to find than either of the large 8 varieties, O.101 and O.103.   The O.102 die was almost certainly prepared by Robert Scott (no notch in star 13); John Reich’s failing eyesight led to his retirement in 1817.  From MB 49, lot 35, Aug. 2019 @ $4,400.   Estimate: $3,500 to $4,000
