Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 VF35 NGC. B-23, BB-105, R.3. The 8 in the date is firmly united with the bust and star 7 points to the lower left serif of the L in LIBERTY. Several diagnostics identify the reverse, including die flaws between the TE in STATES and another above the fourth star on the top row. Hints of gold accent the silver-gray surfaces, which are remarkably clean for the grade. The obverse is a trifle soft at the center, as usual, but the rest of the details are well-defined.
