Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9, Close Date XF40 NGC. B-26, BB-114, R.5. Digit 8 out of position, high and leaning slightly right; Line star pattern, star 12 touches upper beak, star 13 touches scroll. Reiver die state a. Bowers-Borckardt die state V. The final die state seen. The surfaces of this coin have been lightly cleaned and remain bright silver with a hint of peripheral gold. The strike is reasonably good for this late die state, but we do note central weakness on Liberty's neck curls, and on the stars opposite from Liberty's bust. Identifiable by a tiny dig on Liberty's temple. Ex: Liberty Coin Co. (June, 1954); K.P. Austin; A.J. Ostheimer; Superior ANA sale (August, 1975) lot 895; Jules Reiver Collection (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 23539.
