Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 AU53 PCGS. B-11, BB-111, R.3. Die State V, an intermediate die state with a bulge in the lower right obverse field, with a crack along the bulge, and another crack across the hair above the ear. Eventually these two cracks extend through opposite sides of star 13, providing a dramatic terminal die state. Although B-11, BB-111 is only moderately scarce, it is rare above VF grades. In fact, the Notable Specimens section of the Bowers Silver Dollar Encyclopedia shows no Mint State pieces and only six AU examples. The present piece is unlisted among those specimens and ranks in a third place tie among the best examples of this variety.
