50C 1827/6 PCGS MS66 0-102 EX POGUE
What a coin! We owned it before are really want to make sure this time the coin gets a great home. It was just in the CSNS Auction where it sold for about $39,000.00. Prior to that it sold in our LRCA auction 09/2018 for $36,425.00. We think BOTH prices are too cheap for this colorful beauty!
Here is the description from our 09/2018 sale:
Among the very FINEST KNOWN 1827/6s that survive for collectors, PCGS has only graded as single coin marginally finer as a 66+.
This beautifully toned, ultra-GEM grade example has a spectacular eye appeal and clearly was lovingly cared for and preserved, a remarkable miracle of numismatic survival. A bold, glowing luster radiates with superb brilliance on both sides, rolling along on with strong cartwheels. The spectacular visual allure is augmented by a very attractive pale blue that dominates toward the peripheries, fading and blending with hues of peach, gold, and soft pewter. The surfaces are smooth and the luster is ultra creamy with a strong satiny texture. The devices are sharply struck up and crisply rendered by an exacting blow from the dies. The eye appeal is intense and SUPERB. It is almost unbelievable that a Capped Bust half could look this beautiful after so many years!
PCGS 3, NGC 2, CAC 3. Only the Earle-Clapp-Eliasberg-Kaufman coin, graded PCGS M66+ is listed higher in the Condition Census, now impounded in the Dr. Charles Link Collection. This is a wonderful, SUPERB example of this overdate variety that ranks near the APEX of Condition Census.Opportunity knocks loud here!
