1809 III Edge -  O.109b R.3 PCGS AU 55 CAC


Electric blue and gold album toning engulfs the stars and legend.  The centers are protected by a patina of russet and silver-grey.  Another coin with first rate eye-appeal.  The obverse die, in its first use, is free of the die break through star 4 that cherry pickers look for to ferret out unattributed examples of the rare 1809 O.108 and O.110.  Yet another prize from the offerings in my bourse case at the 1994 Detroit ANA.  

Estimate: $2,000 to $2,500
