    I bought this from @C-B-D for a VERY low price. It's awesome and I couldn't be happier! IMG_1076.JPG Sorry for the poor crop job, and thank you to C-B-D! What does the slab say? (Hint: PCGS)

    I'd say XF-40, as far as the Overton, I have no idea. I don't have the reference books to attribute it. I do know its a square base 2 though. :)

    My grade (correct grade): VF-35
    PCGS: XF-40

    Yes, square base 2, hard to say which O variety from those crappy pics ;-)

    O-117 R3?

    Um. I would NEVER sell a nice original bustie for $18 or $35. Y'all are crazy!

    Also, fwiw, 1827's are notorious for being the most difficult date to attribute in the Overton guide. There are a ton of them, and in many, the differences are subtle.

    It's fun being crazy, the member said he picked it up at a really good price so it was a off the wall guess. The coin with out the tarnish would look fantastic as the coin has excellent definition , and the features seem very good. The coin probably is in the high dollar range and it is in nice condition.

    XF
    O-117 - not the 117a due to missing die crack in states.
    $175

    Now having seen better pics, I think the T/I alignment is +3 and not +2. So O-117 is not an option anymore. As there are 13 different varieties for +3 and I don’t have my books with me, I’ll stop here...

    It's a sickness lol. I'm new into this 19th century coinage, and having a blast!!

    I went through all the +3 and feel I have ruled them all out. If I am overlooking something I hope someone else is able to confirm either.

    I bought this for the awesome original toning, or "tarnish", as you say.
