Lot Description
1796 $1 Large Date, Small Letters VF20 PCGS. B-5, BB-65, R.2. Die State II, with a large die lump above I in AMERICA, but not touching C or the rim above. The 6 in the date is doubled. As noted in Bowers-Borckardt: "... this is visible at the underside of the top of 6 and the upper inside of the bottom loop." This is a pleasingly original VF example with natural rose-gray toning over both sides. Obverse stars 2 and 3 are weak, as are STA of STATES on the upper reverse. Evenly worn with few marks on either side.
