1809 III Edge - O.107 R.3 PCGS MS 60
An enticing halo of turquoise and gold iridescence runs through the stars and legend. Liberty’s cheek, cap and drapery lines are free of cabinet friction. The luster is full, but rather subdued in some areas, probably accounting for the seldom seen MS 60 grade. Minor contact marks and a short drift mark under the motto do not diminish the eye appeal of the coin. The III edge is more common than its XXX edge sibling. Choice AU and Mint State specimens remain in demand. From Tom Sear’s collection; acquired from Aspen Park in March 2009. Est. $3,500 to $4,000.
