1819/8 Sm. 9 -  O.101 1 PCGS AU 58 CAC

There are six over-dated die pairs in 1819.  Only one was struck from a working die prepared with the “small 9” punch.  Just two CAC-approved PCGS AU 58’s have ever appeared at auction, this one and the Eliasberg coin (MB 43, lot 30, Aug. 2016 @ $3,906).  When David Kahn consigned this piece to MB 45, my 2018 ANA Sale, I described lot 77 as follows: “… beautifully struck.  The brilliant, untoned surfaces are awash in luster and devoid of marks.  A bit of antique toning flutters through ES OF AM on the reverse.  Nice!”  Howard Sharfman prevailed at $3,740.  His BHNC colleague Tom Sears later acquired it by private treaty.   Estimate: $3,000 to $4,000
