Lot Description
1796 $1 Large Date, Small Letters AU50 NGC. B-5, BB-65, R.4. Die State II. This die variety can be attributed quickly by noting that the small letters reverse used here has a die break between the I and C of AMERICA. Also, the 6 in the date was double punched, and the stars on the right are very close together, with some almost (or just) touching each other. The lower right tip of the R in LIBERTY was struck from a broken punch. The surfaces are bright and overlaid with a light accent of lavender patina that deepens considerably in several areas on the reverse. Better defined in the obverse than the reverse, with a couple of field marks on the right side of the obverse. From the Albany Collection.
