1830 Sm.0 -  O.108 R.3 ANACS EF 40

Wrong holder and out of order!  What is this doing here?  I turned away nearly 30 coins to limit Part 1 of the sale to 100 lots and maintain the quality of coins being offered.  This ANACS graded coin was irresistible; it holds the record for the most undergraded slab I have encountered.  Cartwheel luster spins beneath the gorgeous toning.  The surfaces are without defects.  In short, the coin is a nice AU.  The consignor has owned it coin for decades.  He wondered whether it should be submitted to PCGS.  Well, yes and no.  Why spend $50 in fees, postage and insurance when a savvy collector will happily buy the coin, not the holder?  No reserve on this one.  The winner will have a lovely coin and a terrific conversation piece.
