Choice $750 Superior F-102a Offering, Choice Original Surfaces, Light Gray Patina, Top 100 Varieties #22, AuburnNY Accordian Collection. A wonderful 1842-O F-102a example to consider given the complete strike and unabraded surfaces and worthy of a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Light gray patina is uniform and covers both sides. Obverse strike is especially pleasing and contrasts sharply with the shattered and worn reverse. This reverse sees considerable usage and develops numerous die cracks from the rim in the legend and wreath. This late F-102a die state was previously designated "Shattered Reverse #2" by Brian Greer in his 1992 guidebook. The F-102a die state is listed within the Top 100 Varieties set due to the abundance of reverse die cracks. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval. A gem original offering from the AuburnNY Accordian Collection.
