Lot Description
Rarity 5. NGC graded AU-58.</B> For the date, a lustrous, smooth-surfaced pale golden to antique gray beauty with a dash of cartwheel effect around the periphery on both sides. Attractively struck as well, with just a hint of softness at the eagle's head and breast feathers along with portions of E PLURIBUS UNUM on the scroll. Rims are outstanding. The surfaces, as mentioned, exceedingly choice for the grade, the age, and the Type. Worth considering.<BR><BR>Possibly incomplete reverse: Only 10 arrows plus a stick (headless arrow) between the 2nd and 3rd shafts from the right. Five small berries, two top ones closest together. Point of leaf under left lower tip of I in AMERICA. Star distant from eagle's beak. Arc star pattern. This is an earlier State before a die crack develops along the right wing tip, top of AM to border above E. Reverse die used to strike BB-107 (earlier state) and 1798 BB-108 (later state, lightly relapped). Pop 1; 1 finer in MS61. Only 17 examples graded for this variety at NGC.</B> <BR>Estimated Value $15,000 - 16,000. <I><BR>Ex; Hesselgesser Collection.</I>
