1809 S-280 R2 Large 9 over Small 9. PCGS graded MS-64 Brown. CAC Approved. Very attractive lustrous medium steel brown and chocolate with traces of faded mint red showing on the reverse. Satiny mint frost covers the planchet, even the highest points of the devices, and this cent offers outstanding eye appeal. The best identifying marks are a dull pinprick in the field over the back of the head and a couple microscopic ticks high on the cheekbone. The reverse is flawless. MDS, Breen state VI early. The die crack from TE in STATES reaches the wreath but does not extend to the E in ONE, and the tiny depression over the left top of the M in AMERICA is present. In addition the "Large 9 over Small 9" feature is obvious to the unaided eye. This feature is seldom visible with such clarity. This cent is plated in the 1991 Noyes reference to illustrate the variety. Graded MS63 Choice and tied for CC#1 in the Noyes census, his photo #20137. Bland says MS63 and CC#1. Our grade is MS63. A great 1809 cent in every respect. The attribution and Naftzger-Reynolds provenance are noted on the PCGS Secure label. Pop 2; none finer at PCGS for the variety (PCGS # 36466) .
Estimated Value $40,000-UP.
From England in 1973 to John J. Ford, Jr. 1974-Jon Hanson 2/1974-R. E. Naftzger, Jr.-Bill Noyes 8/2010.

Realized $129,250
