DLRC #: 1382288 // PCGS #: 8104

The 1809/8 is the only major issue of this year as all 1809's are overdates. Lustrous yellow-gold surfaces with fantastic luster. A few minor adjustment marks are noticeable above the head of Liberty but go mostly unnoticed from the larger view. Only 33,875 coins struck of this issue.
