1809 -  O.113a R.5 PCGS Shield XF 40

Outrageous original toning, likely from storage in tissue paper.  Luster envelops the stars and legend.  Weakness at the eagle’s head and left wing are standard for this rare die pair.  I spotted the piece back in 1997, raw and unattributed in a Heritage Long Beach auction.  (Note the 4 equidistant stars and I left of T.)  I sold the coin to a sophisticated collector who kept it in his cabinet for the last 23+ years.  My sales tag from 1997 and the consignor’s kraft envelope with personal notes accompany the lot.  The O.113 is the scarcer die pair of the R.5 trio, O.112-113-114.   Estimate: $2,000 to $2,500
