Owner's Comments

O-101A, Rarity 3. From Stack's Orlando Auction, 1/05/2009 - Medium gray and lilac toning over lustrous surfaces, with some hints of blue around the border. A lovely example, indeed one of the finest graded by PCGS, of this key issue. Among the different years in the Capped Bust series, continuously from 1807 to 1836, except for 1816 (when none were minted), the 1815 is far and away the scarcest. All are from a single die, overdated as 1815/2.
