Lot Description
1797 $1 10x6 Stars, Large Letters XF40 PCGS. B-3, BB-71, R.2. The obverse and reverse dies were each used to strike this single variety, so it is listed first in the Bowers-Borckardt reference. The two 9x7 stars varieties came later, sharing an obverse die. The B-1 die marriage has a reverse die that continued into 1798, so it is listed third of the three known die combinations. This pleasing piece has excellent design definition with lustrous silver surfaces and light wear that carries a deep gold appearance. Possibly finer than the grade suggests.
