Sheridan Downey Auction August 2015 Mail Bid Auction 41 Aug-2015 Ex Dr. Charles Link, noted on the PCGS label. Here is another important coin from the Link Collection. This lustrous example appears to be the 2nd finest known of the rare early die state. The familiar obverse die break is in its infancy, just a feathery line from the rim to Liberty’s lowest curls. High rims and sharply outlined devices confirm the die state. A pastel ring of gold encases the stars and legend. This is a charming coin that offers rarity, charisma, eye appeal and a distinguished provenance in one package. For the advanced collector it is a taste of caviar. Better yet, quoting Walter Breen, it is a morsel drawn from a plate of peacock’s tongues! Last appearing at the sale of Donald Frederick’s collection, lot 3002 of Heritage’s 2010 Central States Signature Auction. PCGS suggests a current value of $6,750. Est. $5000 to $7,000.
