Ex Charlton Meyer, Jr. Another early date with coveted album toning, a virtual twin to the preceding 1809 O.109b. The late die state is hallmarked by catastrophic die breaks circling the stars and legend. Striking weakness shows in the left wing and the clasp while Liberty’s tresses and drapery folds remain distinct. This was BHNCer Troy Nelson’s (The Allgood Collection) set piece, offered by Heritage at its FUN Show Sale in Jan. 2011 with no indication of where Troy picked it up. Tim was the happy buyer of Lot 3605 at $1,840. The Meyer provenance appears on the PCGS label. My notes on the coin from 2008 (when I acquired and sold the Meyer Collection) show that Swampy purchased the coin from Elliott Goldman (Allstate Coin) in June 1989. I graded the raw coin choice AU, adding, “Nice, with halo toning.” Troy Nelson and Tim Osborne agreed.
Estimate: $1,700 to $2,000
