Lot Description
1797 $1 9x7 Stars, Small Letters VG10 PCGS. B-2, BB-72, R.4. The Small Letters reverse of 1797 is especially scarce and desirable. Probably some 200-300 pieces are known in all grades, with the vast majority grading less than XF. The obverse of this coin is well defined for the grade, but the reverse is typically weak as the reverse die was relapped prior to striking, thus reducing the details on that side. Pink-gray toning adorns the elegant surfaces. A couple of heavy scratches reside in the field area just before Liberty's face, and a few wispy pinscratches are noted on each side.
