1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.116 R.4+ PCGS MS 62 CAC

From MB 39, lot 43, August 2014, Part 2 of Selections from the Davignon Collection.  This is a beautifully toned RARE die variety, firmly ensconced in the Condition Census.  A golden patina blankets the coin, flanked by green and turquoise iridescence through the stars and legend.  Just what the doctor ordered for those who prefer colorful coins.  The luster is without a trace of disturbance.  There can be no argument with CAC’s conclusion that the coin is “high end” for the grade.  I note that the Heifetz coin from 1989 found its way into a PCGS MS 63 holder, appearing in Heritage’s May 2008 sale at $6,900.  It is tied with the PCGS MS 63 Meyer coin.  The current offering will give those two “63s” a run for their money.  Davignon uncovered this piece in an eBay auction in September 2003.  Nice find!   Estimate: $4,000 to $4,500
