1809 -  O.112 R.5 PCGS Shield VF 20


Natural medium grey toning, lighter on the devices.  The surfaces are surprisingly smooth for the assigned grade.  Assembling a 15-piece die variety set of 1809’s is a challenge but manageable if decent, mid-grade examples are your cup of tea.  Cherry picking tip:  the O.112, 113, 114 and 115 varieties of 1809 were struck from the same obverse die.  Look at stars 1, 7, 8 and 13.  They are about the same distance from the portrait.  Flip the coin over.  If the I in pluribus is left of the second T in states buy the coin.  It will not be the common O.115.  You have an R.5 in your hands.   Estimate:  $275 to $400
