Lot Description
1798 $1 Small Eagle, 13 Stars XF40 PCGS. B-1, BB-82, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II, lowest curl on the obverse is incomplete due to die lapping. The 1798 Small Eagle silver dollars fall into two groups based on the reverse die, showing either 15 stars (B-2, BB-81) or 13 stars as on the present variety. All other 1798 dollars are of the Heraldic Eagle design type. The present example is quite attractive for the grade, showing sandy-pink color over surfaces with only a few scattered, trivial marks. This coin would make a nice example for a collector working on a date set or major variety set of early silver dollars. Population: 29 in 40, 37 finer (4/13).
