Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Centered AU58 NGC. B-15, BB-52, R.2. Die State V. A faint hairline crack is evident over the R, continuing to the tops of ICA as described in the Superior Gilhousen Catalog (October 1973), there described as one of the last pieces made. The Queller specimen is in a similar late die state, and is a finer example, approaching the Mint State category. A trace of wear on Liberty's cheek and shoulder, and rub on the eagle's body, are the only traits that prevent a Mint State grade for this lovely piece. Reflective silver surfaces are enhanced by steel and iridescent toning. Perhaps 10 or 12 Mint State coins exist, followed by this piece and a few other exceptional AU coins. In their 1991 catalog, Stack's called this piece Brilliant Uncirculated. Ex: Stack’s (10/1991), lot 837. From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars.
