1809 XXX Edge -  O.108a R.4+ PCGS XF 40 CAC

Assembling an XF or better set of the 15 known 1809 die pairs is a daunting task.  Five carry R.5 rarity ratings.  The R.4+ 1809 O.108 and O.110 are equally difficult to find in grades above VF.  Tim found this handsome example in Mail Bid Sale 12 (July 1994) where I offered lot 113, consigned by Ivan Leaman, as a raw XF 40:  A superb example.  The detail in both wings is as nice as I have seen.  The neck-curl and clasp are soft.  Overall, this piece looks too sharp for a 108.  Original antique grey toning enhances the eye appeal.  A condition rarity for the connoisseur.  In the 27+ years to follow, Tim never found a better example to grace his remarkable collection.

Estimate: $1,500 to $2,000
