Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, 10 Arrows XF40 NGC. B-21, BB-107, R.5. The usual die state common to all known varieties, with a small die lump over the date, and a faint crack at the tops of AM. The Bowers-Borckardt Encyclopedia suggests a surviving population of 250 to 450 coins. However, we consider the variety much scarcer with only 60 to 80 examples known today. Both sides have pleasing gray-brown surfaces with lighter silver on the devices. Minor adjustment marks are visible on the obverse.
