Lot Description
1798 $1 Knob 9 XF45 PCGS. B-3, BB-94, Die State III. One of the scarcer 1798 varieties, distinguished by die dots below the word LIBERTY as well as on the figure of Liberty, combined with an arc star pattern on the reverse. A short die crack between star 2 and the border confirm the later die state. Additional cracks are also noted on the left side of the obverse. Just 150 to 250 BB-94s are estimated to survive. This still-lustrous example is accented in attractive russet hues and shows at least as much detail as the Bowers plate coin. There is an unobtrusive grease stain from Liberty's bust and a short horizontal dig to the left of stars 12 and 13.
