Lot Description
1797 $1 9x7 Stars, Large Letters B-1, BB-73, R.2. VF30 NGC. Nine stars left and seven right; Lowest left berry on inside of wreath. Reiver die state a. Bowers-Borckardt die state I. Light gray with a touch of gold on the worn high points of the design. A loupe will note some very minor edge nicks and a couple of scratches below the TY of LIBERTY. Well struck as nearly always seen. The fields and devices are otherwise quite attractive for the moderate grade. This early die state shows two points from the misplaced star well below star nine in the field with a single point quite clear between the back of Liberty's head and the ninth star, lines extend up from the back of Liberty's head below the L of LIBERTY, and die file marks are seen before her neck. Not a particularly scarce variety, and always popular with type collectors. No pedigree information included. Envelope Included.
