1807 Large Stars -  O.114 R.3 PCGS AU 58 CAC

Ex Dell Loy Hansen   Cartwheel luster dazzles the eye on this brilliant, untoned specimen.  Early die state.  The strike is better than average, showing slight softness in the curls and drapery lines.  Friction is confined to the high points.  In all, a virtual twin to the PCGS AU 58 example offered in MB 51, Feb. 2021, lot 3 @ $14,912.  The Osborne coin comes from the celebrated collection of Utah businessman Dell Loy Hansen.  Legend offered it in its May 2019 sale, where lot 314 brought $9,400 – a steal in your cataloguer’s estimation.  Tim acquired it shortly thereafter in a private transaction with David Lawrence R.C.  For many bust half devotees this 1807 would be the crowing jewel in his or her collection.

Estimate: $10,000 to $15,000
