1829. . O-115, Rarity-1. PCGS graded MS-65. Lovely rainbow toning on both sides. The variety is fairly quickly spotted, due to the following: Stars sharp and close to milling. The 5[0] has a short top with upturned tip. Arrowheads separated and the lower one is recut at the upper back side near the shaft. The inner border of the shield on the left extends into feather at bottom. Right side of I under left side of T. Base of second T in STATES higher than A and E.

This piece is simply over the top in terms of eye appeal. The wonderful patina features pastels of many colors predominating throughout, with radiant cartwheel luster over well-struck surfaces. In MS65 this piece would appear to be well within the Condition Census for the variety, and one of the finest available at least among recent sales as enumerated in auction references. Pop 16; 3 finer in 66
(PCGS # 6154) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.

Realized $14,950
