1827 Curl Base 2 -  O.147 R.4 PCGS Shield AU 55 CAC

Against stern competition, Dr. Glenn Peterson won this coin at a Heritage sale in October 2012 (lot 4334), paying $2,115.  The current PCGS label memorializes the Peterson provenance.  Only two die pairs of 1827 have a curl base 2, the O.146 and O.147.  The R.4 O.147 is significantly tougher to find, especially in high grade.  The coin, now CAC approved, enjoys full cartwheel luster.  The reverse has a gloss of golden toning.  The obverse is brilliant and untoned.   Estimate: $1,250 to $2,000
