Lot Description
1797 $1 9x7 Stars, Small Letters VF20 PCGS. B-2, BB-72, R.4. Once thought to be a major rarity, this variety is scarce, and it is the most elusive of the three 1797 die marriages. Perhaps as many as 150 to 200 examples survive in all grades, with most falling in the Fine to Very Fine range. Only one die state is recorded in the literature, further pointing to the scarcity of the variety. This splendid example has natural golden-gray and pale blue toning with exceptionally smooth, mark-free surfaces. A few dark toning spots are noted on the reverse.
