Lot Description
1817/3 50C AU55 NGC. CAC. O-101a, R.2. The typical die crack from the edge through ME, wing tip, arrow shafts, denomination, and olive leaves is present. The die lump below star 13 is pronounced, as is the underdigit 3 beneath the 7. This piece offers rather deeply toned grayish-gold surfaces, with contrasting lilac tinted high points--an appealing original appearance. Certified in an old-style NGC holder, this coin is attractive despite a few thin marks on the central reverse. Census: 14 in 55, 32 finer (4/10).
