The NGC insert incorrectly attributes this coin as an example of the 1809/"6" (i.e., 9/Inverted 9) C-5 die variety. In reality, this is a common die pairing, but the coin is uncommonly smooth with just a hint of deep brick-red color remaining. About 30 degrees of clockwise die rotation is noticed as the coin is turned from side to side.
