So I received this 1809 Half Cent
as a "gift" for an online order that had some issues. It was nice of the seller who made everything right. With that being said, the condition is much worse than I would typically go for with some fairly significant porosity on the obverse however as I was trying to attribute this I keep concluding this is the C-4 small "0" inside large "0." My conclusion is solely based on the reverse where the tip of the top leaf is just left/below the "O" in OF. That appears to be the only reverse with that characteristic. I do not have any of the old varieties books and I am just using Bowers' book on half and large cents. According to that there is only one reverse to the "0" in "0" variety. With that being said I don't see any evidence of the variety on the date however that may simply be due to the corrosion. Can anyone help confirm if there was only one reverse for this variety and if so I could attribute accordingly? I usually do not collect overdate varieties, but given the price (or lack thereof) and the fact that I have a blank for the "0" in "0" in my Dansco Half Cent
album, I will place it in the album if I can confirm it is that variety. Thanks in advance for the feedback!
