    1809 S-280, B-1 Cent, Unc Details
    Scarce Classic Head Issue

    1809 1C S-280, B-1, R.2 -- Corrosion Removed -- PCGS Genuine. Unc Details. Although only issued for seven years from 1808 to 1814, the Classic Head cents are interesting as the even-numbered dates are common, and the odd-numbered dates, 1809, 1811, and 1813, are scarce. This is one of those scarce odd-numbered dates, and the present example is outstanding. Both sides have pleasing chocolate-brown surfaces with splashes of maroon patina on the reverse where slight corrosion was removed. This is a pleasing piece with good overall eye appeal. Our EAC grade XF40.
