Lot Description
Lovely blue and gold toning on both sides. An astonishingly beautiful toned example of the best possible order for the AU55 grade, a coin whose lustrous surfaces play host to robust sharp detail, choice surface quality, and iridescent originality.<BR><BR>On this close perfect date variety, there is a wide space between 8 and 0. The figure 2 is distant from bust. The right foot of T in LIBERTY is missing. This die must have been made about the same time as the reverse for 1801 BB-213, which also displays broken T letters from the same punch. The obverse die was used to strike 1802 BB-241 only. Pop 4; 10 finer at NGC for this variety.</B> <BR>Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000. <I><BR>Ex Dr. Hesselgesser.</I>
