Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle AU50 NGC. B-15, BB-112, R.3. The first star is distant from the curl, and a short mint-made spike emerges from the hair curl below the B in LIBERTY. Deep olive-brown and mahogany patina endows this nearly problem-free example. The centers are typically struck, but the peripheral stars and legends and the eagle's wings, shield, and legs are all well struck. A short vertical pinscratch below the L in LIBERTY is well concealed by the rich toning. The dies are rotated lightly counterclockwise.
