Original $5500 Popular Doubled Date, Original, Cumberland County Collection. The 1844-O doubled date is a perennial favorite, plainly visible with the naked eye and honored with its own Red Book listing. Die preparation was still an involved affair in this era, and coiners were forced to ignore quality control from time to time. This is a prime example, with a second 1844 clearly punched into the rock and the field above the date. This piece exhibits rose-tan shading on both sides, with additional maroon splashes on the obverse. Remaining luster is minimal, but the real story here is the dramatically doubled date, a variety that is especially prized in higher circulated grades. Housed in a PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) Dupont hologram holder with "RPD FS-303 WB-108" label attribution.
