Lot Description
1798 $1 Small Eagle, 13 Stars XF40 PCGS. B-1, BB-82, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. A heavy die crack descends from the upper reverse rim through the second T in STATES, with one branch angling downward through ES to a branch tip; the other branch is from the bottom of T through the branch immediately beneath and extends almost to the upper edge of the eagle's left (facing) wing. This is a gorgeous XF example, with obviously original coloration that tends toward deep mauve and purple-gray; reddish-coral highlights are likewise prominent on both sides, and increase the coin's overall visual appeal. Evenly worn with few marks, and definitely a high-end specimen. Certified in an old green label holder. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 2336.
