Lot Description
Rarity 2. PCGS graded VF-35.</B> A fittingly choice example for the grade, of the optimum quality in terms of color and absence of nicks and scuffs for this widely popular and collected silver dollar design.<BR><BR>After the word AMERICA, an almost vertical line or stray mark (apparently, not a die crack), perhaps from a punch or from a stray piece of metal during the die making process, appears to form an added "I". Nowhere else in the silver dollar series has a stray die mark done so much for a coin's fame in the eyes of collectors.<BR><BR>Other characteristics: Star enters eagle's mouth; point of lower part of beak touches star lightly below point. Upper part of beak does not quite touch. Point of leaf slightly right of being under left upright of I in AMERICA. Middle berry is small and joined to a leaf point by what seems to be a die scratch. A touches 3rd feather only, and ME almost join at bottom. Center of A over cloud 3. Only 10 examples graded for the variety at PCGS.(PCGS # 40082) </B>. <BR>Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,000. <I><BR>Ex; Hesselgesser Collection.</I>
