Lot Description
1803 H10C Large 8 VF20 PCGS. V-1, LM-2, R.4. Ex: Eliasberg. A very scarce variety, the more elusive of the two Large 8 die pairs for the date. Dusky green-gold and violet-gray toning blankets faintly luminous surfaces. Moderately worn but decidedly appealing. The Eliasberg catalog gave this coin a split grade, VF25/VG8, though the PCGS grade acknowledges the low starting relief for the reverse die in making its determination. For the various Large 8 varieties, Population: 9 in 20, 65 finer (7/10). Ex: Probably S.H. Chapman, 5/1908; John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate, 1942; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Collection (5/1996), lot 904.
