1809 XXX Edge -  O.101 R.5 PCGS XF 40


Another original example of this exceedingly rare die pair.  Rich antique grey and auburn toning fails to disguise a generous helping of luster that surrounds most devices.  The strike matches the AU example in lot 5.  The coin has never appeared at auction.  It was discovered by BHNC pioneer Bob Fritz sometime before 1998, the year our consignor acquired it from Bob by private treaty.  It recently paid its first visit to a grading service.  The XF 40 grade, frankly, is a disappointment.  Many would settle on XF 45.  Perhaps the left wing unduly influenced the graders.  Astute collectors will not let this lovely coin escape without a battle.   Estimate:  $2,500 to $3,000
