From SD MB#43 catalog: "With but 2 mint state examples confirmed, an AU `09-110 is well established as a condition rarity. We old timers know how difficult it is to find this die pair in any condition, let alone high grade. The PCGS label correctly notes that the coin has been cleaned. The abundant luster was thereby softened. The pale grey/gold surfaces are virtually free of marks, attesting to the coin’s very brief entry into the stream of commerce. (The “incused segments” over the eagle are from a clashed die, also seen on the common 1809 O.102.) This piece surfaced at the March 2016 Baltimore show and now makes its inaugural appearance at auction. It deserves a warm welcome."

Stack's Bowers Catalog: "A warm amber glow radiates from the right obverse border before cooling to vibrant cobalt iridescence at left, complemented by a much more subtle incendiary glow at the reverse borders. The surfaces exhibit a uniform luster that is typically reserved for pieces of a loftier grade assignment, rendering this piece decidedly choice as it sits. Passionately rendered and attractive in all respects."

Per SD MB#43 catalog: "The vast majority of this die pair display filled A’s in the legend. In his 5th ed. revision of Overton Don Parsley rated the early die state (or “prime”) R.4. The BHNC suggests R.5+. If you collect the series by die variety AND die states, don’t miss this opportunity! Dusty grey toning blankets the coin. The NGC grade is generous. Most would settle on XF 40 or choice VF. From the collection of Dr. Charles Link; ex Charles De Olden; last offered by Heritage in its Jan. 2007 FUN sale, lot 4401 @ $690."
