Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle AU50 NGC. B-8, BB-125, R.2. Die State II. Pleasing gunmetal-gray and gold color enriches the obverse. The reverse is deeply toned in mauve and ebony tints. This sharp example is refreshingly void of detrimental marks, and the only detectible rim mark is at 12 o'clock on the obverse. Just four berries on the eagle's olive branch, which, along with a faint vertical crack beneath the hair ribbon, provides prompt identification of the variety. 1798 is the most prolific date, in terms of number of die varieties, within the Early Dollar series.
