Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 AU50 PCGS. B-28, BB-118, R.3. The obverse die was used with seven different reverse dies, and BB-118 was the sixth of those seven die marriages. The obverse has the usual cracks below and through the date while the reverse is perfect without die cracks, an unusual state. This example is probably among the top 15 or 20 known pieces with pale champagne and gray toning over the still lustrous surfaces. From The Strawberry Fields Collection.
