1829 -  O.106 R.5- PCGS Shield MS 61 CAC

Link provenance noted on the PCGS label.  Last seen in MB 41, my 2015 ANA Sale, where our consignor prevailed at $4,973.   The coin still holds court as the 3rd finest known of this rare variety.  Antique toning smacks of originality.  Flecks of gold iridescence dot the stars and legend.  The luster is full, though a bit muted by the attractive toning.  No marks deserve mention.  Keith Davignon’s AU 58 brought $4,400 in MB 39 in 2014.  This CAC approved example is even nicer.  Dr. Link acquired the coin by private treaty in November 2008.  Earlier, it was in the collections of Robert Zornes and David Kahn.   Estimate: $3,800 to $4,500
