PCGS grade. Ex. Green; Farouk (1954) Sold by David Akers Numismatics Oct '97 Price realized $7150
David Akers (1975/88): The 1842-O is yet another date that has never really been given its due as a rarity. It is seldom available in any condition and on the infrequent occassions one is offered, it is invariably only VF or lower. I have never seen an uncirculated example or even a strictly graded AU for that matter. I have, however, seen several choice EF's, but not all that many even at that level.
