Lot Description
1796 $1 Small Date, Large Letters -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. VF. B-4, BB-61, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. The disconnected two thin arcs of hair atop Liberty's forehead diagnose this later obverse die state. The slanted 6 in the date and Large Letters reverse aid in attribution of this available early dollar variety from the popular 1796 year. This glossy Guide Book-variety example shows faint gray, gold, and blue hues under a strong light and still remains quite collectible, with no major contact marks. From The Papio Collection.
