Lot Description
1796 $1 Small Date, Large Letters XF40 NGC. B-4, BB-61. R.3. The diagnostic die dot above the 1 in the date is quite visible on this specimen. The Small Eagle silver dollars, produced from 1795 through 1798, are becoming increasingly hard to locate in the numismatic marketplace. We believe this is due to a large number of die variety collectors that have recently entered the early dollar arena and purchased numerous examples. The XF coin we offer in this lot has light gray patina with splashes of cobalt-blue, gold-brown, and lilac, and semi-bright, essentially clean surfaces. The design elements reveal nice definition, and are well centered on the planchet. The dentilation is complete and bold on both sides.
