Description:

1800 S-209, B-23 Cent, AU55
The Garrett Specimen
1800 1C AU55 PCGS. S-209, B-23, R.3. MRB AU50. Ex: Brown-Boka. Breen Die State VII, with a narrow rim break confined to the dentils at the bottom of the reverse. Breen suggests that this is the terminal die state for the variety, and it is apparently quite rare in this state. Sheldon rated S-209 as R.5 in Penny Whimsy, stating his opinion that the variety is "one of the aesthetically most pleasing varieties."
The surfaces are dark chocolate with some light brown and artificial red, displaying a few shallow nicks in the right obverse field and a few trivial marks elsewhere. The planchet is imperfectly centered, showing a partial obverse border and a complete but narrow reverse border. This piece was called AU50 in the Garrett, Chalkley, and Brown catalogs. Del Bland also grades this coin AU50 and tied for third finest known. Noyes calls it XF40, with sharpness of AU50, and seventh finest, although only three coins have higher net grades in his list. This is the 1879 Frossard plate coin for the obverse.
Thomas Harrison Garrett (1849-1888) began collecting in 1865 while a student at Princeton University. Two decades later, he had a world-class collection that was well-known in 19th century numismatic circles. His father, John Work Garrett (1820-1884) was president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, in that capacity serving as an advisor to President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War.
