Lot Description
1796 $1 Small Date, Large Letters XF45 NGC. B-4, BB-61, R.3. Dove-gray toning enriches the open fields and recessed devices, while the highpoints, stars, and legends are cream-white. A desirable example of the Draped Bust, Small Eagle type. Liberty's cheek and drapery along with the eagle's belly shows moderate wear, but luster dominates protected areas. The rims are completely free from contact, unlike so many early dollars, and the surfaces are smooth overall with only minor marks above the eagle's right (facing) wing. An opportunity to acquire this eagerly pursued early large silver issue. NGC B-4 Census: 9 in 45, 11 finer (11/07). From The Parker Lee III Collection.
