Lot Description
1798 $1 Small Eagle, 13 Stars, B-1, BB-82, R.3 XF45 NGC. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III with a die crack from the left base of the N in UNITED through the branch directly above. One of only two 1798 varieties that carry over the Small Eagle reverse of 1797, and the sole variety of that subtype with 13 stars. Since 13 stars was the standard introduced in 1797, this suggests that BB-82 is the final Small Eagle variety struck. The present example has pleasing satin luster throughout protected areas. Richly toned in forest-green and golden-tan, and devoid of visible abrasions. Mint-made adjustment marks are limited to the obverse, and are conspicuous only on portions of the portrait.
