Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle AU53 NGC. B-25, BB-123, R.2. This is the so-called "Blundered Stars Reverse" variety. The obverse die was only used to strike this single die marriage. The reverse die, however, was first used to produce 1798 B-25, BB-123, then struck B-24, BB-124. The die will be used one more time in its life, to strike the reverse of the 1799 B-15, BB-152 Dollar, the only 1799 Dollar struck with a 1798 reverse die featuring the Line Star Pattern. Unevenly struck with the upper right stars on the reverse weak. Each side has steel-gray and golden toning with some brightness to the underlying surfaces. There are no obvious or detracting abrasions on either side.
