Lot Description
Lilac and gold toning on both sides. Beautiful deep "old silver" patina with the most developed color around the margin, lightening to medium gray with touches of russet in the areas of most relief. Fields, rims, and devices are in outstanding shape for a coin more than 200 years young! Talk about solid aesthetic appeal in an early silver dollar.<BR><BR>An estimated 400 to 750 specimens exist of the BB-234 overdate, about as many as survive of BB-232. Although several Mint State pieces are reported, most survivors from this die pairing are in lower grades, with Very Fine being typical. Pop 6; 28 finer for the date.</B> <BR>Estimated Value $10,000 - 11,500. <I><BR>Ex Dr. Hesselgesser.</I>
