Early Dates: Classic Head Type (1809)

1809 S-280

A nice example I purchased out of the EAC auction in 2008. Not high grade by any means but very nice surfaces for an 1809. This is the key date to the Classic Head series and very tough to find nice - this is a decent G to VG example. I had bought one awhile back on an online auction but was never happy with it because of moderate porosity. 1809 is the birthyear of Abraham Lincoln.
