Lot Description
1798 $1 Small Eagle, 13 Stars AU50 PCGS. B-1, BB-82, R.3. The upper reverse has a bold die crack from the border through the second T in STATES, with other lighter die cracks. This green-label PCGS specimen is only the 15th example of this variety that we have handled in AU or better grades since January 1993. Both sides are light silver with delicate gold toning and faint iridescent splashes. Both sides have the usual quota of tiny handling marks that are expected for the grade. A small field nick near the Y in LIBERTY will aid future identification. Minor adjustment marks are evident on the reverse.
