Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle AU58 NGC. B-24, BB-124, R.2. Die State V. The latest die state recorded for B-24 with the obverse die shattered. The reverse has a heavy crack from the stem to border, and evidence of lapping at the branch. It is possible that examples of this die state were struck in 1799, after the reverse die was used for 1799 B-15. Heavy horizontal striations at the upper right reverse resemble adjustment marks, except they appear to be raised above the surrounding surface. The stars in this area are weakly defined, as is the drapery on the obverse. A lovely dollar that is very nearly Mint State, with deep grayish-lilac surfaces and attractive gold overtones. The surfaces beneath the toning exhibit nearly full mint frost. Graded AU58 by our firm in 1980, and Brilliant Uncirculated by Stack's in 2003. Almost certainly a low Condition Census specimen. Ex: 1980 ANA (Steve Ivy, 8/1980), lot 2506; Stack’s (3/2003), lot 437. From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars.
