1810/09 S-281 R1 Overdate 10 over 09 PCGS graded AU55+, CAC Approved. Choice frosty chocolate brown and steel with slightly lighter steel brown toning in protected areas. The fields and protected areas are covered with satiny mint luster and this cent offers excellent eye appeal. No spots or stains. The only marks, and they are barely visible, are a thin nick in the field before the forelock and a dull, very light scrape near the dentils under the end of the wreath stem. LDS, Breen state IV. Most of the dentils are gone and many of the stars and letters outside the wreath are drawn to the rim. In addition there is a narrow but clearly defined rim cud at the U in UNITED. Struck slightly off center to K-4.5 leaving the outer edge of some of the design elements tight to the rim. A very attractive cent with just a light touch of rub on the highest points of the hair. Our grade is consistent with the PCGS grade. The attribution and Koshkarian provenance are noted on the PCGS label. PCGS population 1; 2 finer, 1 in 62, 1 in 64 for the variety. Estimate Value $7,500 - UP
