Lot Description
1797 $1 9x7 Stars, Large Letters AU53 PCGS. B-1, BB-73, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III, multiply cracked through Liberty's hair ribbon, but without the cracks in STATES marking later die evolution. All three varieties of 1797 dollar have their own Guide Book listings, increasing all-around demand; the 9x7 Stars, Large Letters is the middle rarity of the three, scarce regardless of grade. Smooth and still-lustrous surfaces are largely blue-gray with olive, gold, and rose touches. Scattered small marks and a couple of old pinscratches are as expected for a large silver coin more than two centuries old.
