I'm still running Snow Leopard, so I can't comment on whether the feature is broken on newer systems, but I just tried to "Save a Copy as Numbers '08" without changing the name or the location and got a warning asking if I wanted to overwrite the original.
I cancelled that, and tried again with a different name. it showed up next to the original, and when I right click on the "08 version, a "Show Package Contents" option appears in the contextual menu, but no such item appears for an '09 file. That might be a way to see if you do have an '08 copy.

I've had similar things happen when I know where I saved a file but it can't be found. I usually save files like this to my Desktop but then they're not there. If I open a Finder window to my Desktop I can often see the file in the window even though I can't just by looking at the Desktop.
Do you know what you named the file? If you're not sure when the file got saved, try saving again & note where Numbers wants to save it. Maybe even go ahead & save again with a slightly different name.

Yes, I did make a note of where I was saving, and I did look all around, and I did a search in Finder. I didn't find a copy anywhere, much less a Numbers '08 formatted copy. I'm wondering if saving a copy in 08 format was to go away when Save As went away, and maybe when they brought back Save As, the Save a Copy as Numbers '08 menu selection was there but non-functional.

Jeff and Peggy,
No need to send me a file. I'm sure I'll have the same result as you did. Peggy did what I consider to be the acid test when she was able to open with Version 1.
I'll duplicate that test as soon as I can comfortably get to my iMac where I have both versions. Recovering from hip surgery and not too mobile at this time.
