Two R.4 die pairs of 1809 are extreme rarities in AU or UNC, O.108 and O.110. I have yet to see or handle a mint state O.108 (though Herrman’s latest AMBPR shows an MS 63 atop the Condition Census). The incomparable Dosier/Prouty/Meyer/Link MS 63 O.110 may have one companion at the Mint State level. You may count AU examples on the fingers of one hand. Here is a pretty one. The obverse sports a panoply of colors, undoubtedly from repose in a Wayte Raymond album. The reverse is lighter with soft luster rolling through the fields. BHNC notables are in the chain of title. Tim Osborne purchased it from Dr. Link during the April 2010 Central States show. Tim passed it to our consignor sometime thereafter.Estimate: $3,000 to $4,000
