1809 1C S-280, B-1, R.2, AU55 NGC. Breen Die State IV, showing a single die crack from the E in STATES to the leaves below. An attractive example of the intermediate die state, this Choice AU piece exhibits glossy olive-brown surfaces with an uneven strike that is bold at the lower right obverse and weak at the upper left obverse. Stars 3 through 7 are mostly absent, and UNIT is partially readable. A few scattered marks are evident on each side, but the overall presentation is far finer than usual for this Classic Head issue.
