Goldberg Auctioneers Auction February 2020 Pre-Long Beach U.S. & World Coin Auction #115 Feb-2020 Lot 89 1802 S-225 R3. PCGS graded MS-63 Brown. CAC.Frosty light olive and steel brown with a few tiny peeps of very faded mint color showing in protected areas, particularly on the reverse. Smooth and attractive with just a few trivial marks. The notable ones are a puff of darker olive brown toning at the dentil tips before the chin, a few dull ticks on the bust (not to be confused with the die clashmarks in the same area), and a small spot of fine reddish carbon at the ribbon left of the numerator. MDS, Breen state III, with strong die clashmarks on and around the bust and fine die cracks on the reverse, but the rim cud break under the date has not formed. There is a strong double profile on the jaw (caused by die bounce or shift during the strike). Graded MS62 and tied for CC#1 in the Noyes census, his photo #21167. Bland says MS60 and tied for CC#5. Our grade is MS60+. The attribution and Doug Bird Collection provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 2; none finer.(PCGS # 36290) Value $15,000 - UP Ex Ed Hipps 1/1988-Douglas F.
