Lot 401

1800 S-194 R3 Overdate 80 over 79, Style II Hair F15. Obverse Brockage with Rotation. Sharpness VF20 but there is a dull hairline scratch down the neck and a pair of light rim bruises just left of the lowest curl. Otherwise the surfaces are smooth and display only a few minor contact marks. Glossy chocolate and darker steel brown. Sharply impressed dentils are clearly visible above ERT in LIBERTY. While this obverse die was used on both S-194 and S-195, the die state is consistent with the earlier S-194 marriage. The incuse obverse impression on the "reverse" is rotated 35 degrees CW from a normal head-to-head brockage impression. The overdate feature is bold. An attractive example of a neat error strike. Graded VF20 by Bland. DWH #0211.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
Ex Richard Picker-Coin Galleries 5/24/89:1056 (via Tony Terranova).

Realized $14,375
