Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle AU53 NGC. B-31, BB-115, High R.4. At one time, this variety was considered to be an important rarity, and was entirely unknown to Haseltine in the late 19th century. Years later, Bolender considered it to be R.7 in 1950, when his reference was published. Today, approximately 100 examples are known. The B-31 is still a major rarity in higher grades, and this piece may actually be among the finest known. Weakness on the reverse from the eagle's head to the clouds below OF is standard for the variety, and seen on all known examples. This piece has excellent luster visible beneath heather and gold color with peripheral iridescence.
