Lot Description
1797 $1 10x6 Stars, Large Letters AU58 NGC. B-3, BB-71, R.2. Less than 2,000 1797 silver dollars survive in all grades, and few are equal to or finer than this near-Mint representative. The average grade for 468 NGC-certified 1797 silver dollars is 37, and only 13 examples are graded AU58, with just 13 others in Mint State grades (3/11), the census including all three die varieties. This lovely piece exhibits nearly full mint frost with brilliant and highly lustrous silver surfaces. Both sides have a few trivial handling marks consistent with the grade. Light adjustment marks at the center of the reverse are inconsequential, and most of the surface marks appear to remain from the original planchet before this piece was struck. The left obverse and reverse show weak details, with the balance boldly defined.
