Lot Description
1797 $1 10x6 Stars AU58 NGC. B-3, BB-71, R.1. Die State III. Lavender, apple-green, and golden-brown patina endows this lightly circulated Silver Dollar. The only die pairing for the date with the stars arranged ten before and six after LIBERTY. Double struck within the collar, the piece rotated a couple of degrees clockwise (relative to the obverse) between blows from the dies. Traces of the initial strike are present on both sides, plainest on Liberty's chin, beneath the hair ribbon, beneath the right (facing) wing, and between the letters that comprise LIBERTY. Faint handling marks are near the third star and under the chin, these do not distract and are completely subdued by the original toning.
