1809 -  O.112 R.5- PCGS XF 40

From the collection of Jerome Zonca.  Pale gold toning with exceptional luster for the assigned grade.  PCGS was too much influenced by the soft strike, a common feature of this rare die pair.  Roughness around the date reflects impurities in the planchet, not removed during the refining process – another common occurrence in the early Mint.  From Heritage’s Oct. 2018 Chicago Sale, lot 3568, bringing a modest $720.   Estimate: $700 to $1,000
