1809 C-4 Circle Inside 0 R2. PCGS graded MS-66 Brown. CAC Approved. Choice lustrous steel brown with peeps of mint red on the reverse. A few very faint hairlines at the dentils over AME, a puff of slightly darker toning at the bottom of the F in HALF, and a barely visible carbon spot on the shoulder are the best identifying marks, and they are trivial. Excellent eye appeal. MDS, Manley state 1.0. The dentils are worn but nearly complete and the reverse is rotated 5 degrees CW. The reverse is slightly misaligned to K-6, as usual on this variety. The circle inside the 0 (actually a Large 0 over a Small 0) in the date is obvious. Our grade is MS63. Probably second finest known, exceeded only by the Gilbert plate coin. The attribution and Missouri Cabinet provenance are shown on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; the only MS graded for the variety. (PCGS # 35230) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
