Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 AU50 NGC. B-15, BB-112, R.3. Die State III. This is the usual die state of the variety, and it is also known as B-15a. The obverse is identified (in all die states) by a short spike the protrudes from the top of the hair below the curl point under B. The reverse has a short die crack from the left shield point up to the ribbon. A wonderful example with smooth gray-brown surfaces and faint traces of iridescent toning. The centers are somewhat weakly defined as always for the variety.
