1809 III Edge - O.109a R.2 PCGS AU 58 CAC
The first of a 24-piece hoard (lots 89-112) - The Heirloom Collection. A pristine 1809 with cakey luster and immaculate surfaces. Cabinet friction on the cheek, nowhere else. This die pair (always?) comes with an III edge. The consignor sent me all 24 coins, unattributed, after CAC finished its work. Openings in the PCGS capsule allowed a peek at portions of the edge, just enough to be sure about the edge variety: III Edge, though not noted on the current PCGS label. In all events, the coin is magnificent. Est. $2,500 and up.
