#10 XF40 PCGS grade
Don Willis: This variety shares the same obverse as the 3 leaf. The date is clearly doubled with the first date low and second date high. There is only one reverse die. I owned the XF45 which is the finest graded by PCGS. This coin was formerly in the Queller collection. While not as sought after as the 3 leaf variety the O-112 is very difficult to locate. I always thought this variety was a sleeper.
