Lot Description
1798 $1 5 Stripes, Pointed 9 AU50 NGC. B-4, BB-92, R.4. This very scarce variant enjoys considerable niche popularity, and a high-end example such as the present coin should prove irresistible to the advanced early dollar specialist. Strongly lustrous peach-gold and silver-gray surfaces show only light wear concentrated over the well struck high points. The coin displays excellent eye appeal and a certified grade that compares favorably to other known survivors.
