Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9, Close Date -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. B-25, BB-123, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II, rare die state, crack from reverse stem end to border below at 5:30. The date is closely spaced and the 1 quite close to the curl. The reverse stars are in a line, positioned too high and touching the clouds in two places. The silver-white surfaces of this piece are well-detailed but overly glossy and show diffuse mint luster. A well-detailed and collectible example of this very scarce die variety. From The Papio Collection.
