1809 C-1 R4. VF-20. Glossy chocolate and steel with traces of lighter brown in a few of the protected areas. The frosty lighter toning could be from an old cleaning, but it may be natural mint color that was hiding under crud that was removed. Either way the toning is very appealing and the eye appeal of this rare variety is quite nice for the grade. No roughness or notable marks. A small, shallow planchet flake on the chin is a good identifying mark. E-MDS, Manley state 2.0 early. The reverse is rotated 30 degrees CCW. This piece is called VF and tied for CC#3 in the Breen condition census. Most likely in the lower end of the condition census today.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
Ex Richard Picker 1956-Norweb Collection, Bowers & Merena 10/12 87:61.

Realized $12,650
