Lot Description
1797 $1 10x6 Stars, Large Letters AU53 NGC. B-3, BB-71, R.2. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. The unusual star arrangement of 10 stars left and only six right easily identifies this pairing, along with the lapping always seen on the highest hair curl below the B of LIBERTY. The reverse shows the Large Letters style, with eight berries on the left branch and a leaf terminating under the middle of E in STATES. The Die State III shows some of the palm leaves partially lapped away. This pleasing 1797 dollar has intermingled light gray and cobalt-blue toning over its light silver surfaces. Considerable frosty luster remains on both sides. This is an exceptional example for the dollar specialist or type collector.
