Owner Comments:

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."
