Lot Description
1798 $1 10 Arrows. B-17, BB-101, R.4. VF20 NGC. Wide date, 17 close, 8 touches bust; Line star pattern, five vertical shield lines, 10 arrows. Reiver die state a. Bowers-Borckardt die state III. Light silvery-gray, with a few darker hues along the left obverse stars. A fairly scarce die pairing and one of the few varieties that has five vertical stripes on the reverse shield. On the reverse we note a broken planchet streak behind the eagle's head to the rim above. Nearly all of the coins struck from this die pairing show the obverse die severely lapped, which greatly weakened the dentils and most have a rather weak strike. On balance, this is a nice coin for the moderate grade assigned. One rim scrape resides over the D of UNITED. Ex: Jonathan Kern (June, 1998). Envelope Included.
