Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 AU55 PCGS Secure. B-26, BB-114, R.5. A light die crack beginning under the date and another on the reverse, from the shield through the stem to the border, identifies the rare BB-114 variety. Q. David Bowers knew of no Mint State examples of the BB-114 when he wrote his series reference in 1993, and the highest grade in his Condition Census was only XF45. This well-struck Choice AU specimen shows just a little flatness on the central reverse and retains much original mint luster, under shades of pink and gold patina. Population (not broken down for variety): 40 in 55, 45 finer (5/12).
