Lot Description
1798 $1 Small Eagle, 15 Stars VF35 PCGS. B-2, BB-81, R.3. Die State II or slightly later.

This piece has a delicate die crack from the top element of the hair ribbon up to star 7. Faint adjustment marks are evident on the obverse of this pleasing Choice VF specimen. The surfaces are light gray with splashes of deeper gray and pale champagne overtones.
