Description 1851-O $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. CAC. Variety 1. The date was initially entered with a downward slope, with both 1s touching the dentils. It was repunched in the correct position, but remnants of all four digits from the first punch are obvious. NGC calls this variety VP-001, as it is unlisted in Cherrypickers'. Variety 1 is more available than its Variety 2 Normal Date alternative. A pumpkin-gold and olive-green example. The strike is somewhat inconsistent but there is little actual wear. There are relatively few abrasions, but we note slender marks on Liberty's forehead and cheek. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $998.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
