Lot Description
1798 $1 Knob 9 XF45 PCGS. B-3, BB-94, R.5. Die State III, with an obverse die crack between stars 2 and 3, apparently a rare die state. The surfaces have natural lilac-gray color on the obverse and gray-gold on the reverse. Exceptional surfaces and bold design details are noted. This example is the H.W. "Woody" Blevins specimen that Superior Galleries sold in 1988. Perhaps the second finest known of the late die state, this piece is finer than the Spies coin or the Aspen coin, and it is marginally lower quality than the Hesselgesser specimen.
