Owner's Comments

B-2 BB-233 Wide Date, 1802/1. Attractive steel toned AU50+++. Should be AU55. Within top 2 of CC. MS non known to survive R4. Est.Pop. 100-175 coins. This is probably optimistic.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth: Bruce Morelan, in an interview with PCGS in 2016, spoke about his PCGS MS64 example: “The 1802, it's actually 1802-over-1, is also from the Newman Collection. And it is Don Willis' favorite coin in the set. When I submitted the Newman coins to PCGS, he said, “This one is my favorite,” and he was pointing to the 1802/1. Again, the nicest attribute about that coin is that it is semi-proof-like. It has great luster, great color, great toning. When you first look at this coin, you see this coin is a gem and it's just held back by a small scratch.
