Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Wide Date, Pointed 9--Reverse Rim Filed--NGC. VF Details. B-20, BB-102, R.5. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. This rare variety example was apparently the victim of a tragic misunderstanding, as the die break below the eagle's tail was apparently treated as a rim bruise and filed. This is otherwise a midgrade example with surfaces ranging from silver-gray to charcoal and prominent adjustment marks on the reverse.
