Lot Description
1796 $1 Large Date, Small Letters Good 6 PCGS. B-5, BB-65, R.2. Die State III, just before IV, with the die break touching the C of AMERICA and close to following the curve. Light silver on the devices with deep reddish-orange and violet fields. The reverse shows considerable rim merging and a few plain edge bumps, but this remains a fundamentally pleasing example of an early dollar.
