1836 50/00 -  O.116 R.2 PCGS AU 55

Pastel copper toning dominates the obverse.  The reverse is lighter with an eye-catching slice of electric turquoise through the dentils, from 6 to 9 o’clock.  This Red Book staple is a reasonably common die marriage though it remains elusive in AU or better.  Full cartwheel luster graces this well struck example.  Note the detail in the eagle’s claws and feathers.  A few signs of handling are obscured by the attractive toning.  In all, a high end coin for the grade.  PCGS suggests $2,000 for an AU 55, about right for this pretty coin.   Estimate: $1,500 to $2,000
