Lightly toned. A few light hairlines on the neck, but generally smooth and attractive for the grade. The rims are choice, as well, an attractive specimen for the collector. Of all 1797 varieties, the BB-72 is at once the rarest, best known, and most sought after. This issue occupies its own niche in numismatic literature, where it has been showcased as a rarity in some instances and ignored in others. Doubtless, it is the best known die variety of the 1796-1797 years combined. Indeed, it may well be the most famous variety after 1794 and before 1804 (PCGS # 6866) </B>. <BR>Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,200.
