1809 -  O.104 R.5- PCGS Shield AU 55

Tied for finest known!  The coin last appeared in August 2016 as lot 14 in my August 2016 ANA Sale, MB 43.  It brought $3,862, a record for the die marriage that was broken last year when it changed hands by private treaty.  The PCGS label notes a prior owner, Dr. Charles Link.  It was earlier in the collections of Charles De Olden [lot 5 Fabulous 44 Sale, 2006 Denver ANA, at $3,000] and Ralph Fox, January 2002 FUN [to De Olden at $2,250].  Tim Osborne became the proud owner in 2016.  The coin is lovely.  Original auburn and grey toning is accented by iridescent highlights at the peripheries.  The chin and left wing are weak, as always.  Soft luster flows throughout.  In all, a wonderful and particularly important coin.   Estimate:  $4,000 to $5,000
