Sale 60

Lot 415

1810/09 S-281 R1 Overdate 10 over 09 G5. Misaligned Dies. Glossy dark chocolate brown with lighter chocolate brown high points. There are hints of extremely fine roughness under the glossy patina, but overall the surfaces are excellent for the grade. May have a die crack from star 11 up through the cap to the rim above the head, but the grade is too low to be sure. The obverse is badly misaligned nearly 10% off center to K-10 while the reverse is properly centered on the planchet. This specific cent is mentioned on page 796 of the Breen book on the early large cents. DWH #2451.
Estimated Value $400-UP.
Ex John D. Wright, 2004 EAC Sale, McCawley & Grellman Auctions 4/17/04:292.

Realized $834
