Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 AU50 NGC. B-8, BB-125, R.2. Bowers-Borckardt Die State I. The long vertical die flaw in the left obverse field identifies the BB-125 variety. The BB-125 is an available variety in lower grades, but Q. David Bowers knew of no Mint State examples when he wrote his series reference in 1993. This lightly circulated example shows just a touch of wear on the high points of the design elements and traces of mint luster cling to the devices.
