Lot Description
1798 $1 Small Eagle, 13 Stars, Genuine PCGS. B-1, BB-82, R.3. The PCGS number ending in .94 suggests Altered Surfaces as the reason, or one of the reasons, PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of a VF specimen with altered surfaces. The BB-82 is the only 1798 Small Eagle variety with 13 obverse stars. This specimen is moderately worn, with pleasing gray patina, and a few adjustment marks on the portrait.
