Interesting 1840 Eagle in Heritage Long Beach
UPDATE on Jan 12, 2019: Just an update on the famous (sort of) 1840 eagle from Long Beach last year. I thought it would be interesting to see if the buyer upgraded it or attempted to do so.
Instead, I see that Mr. Hansen owns this coin and it is listed in his registry still as an AU55.
Lot 5803 in Heritage Long Beach is an AU55 in an OGH that is stickered. PCGS price guide is 3500 but coin is already bid up to 28,000. I guess someone thinks this might grade MS? Or maybe I am missing something else.

To all of the men who have stood with no fear
In the service of the King."
