Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 AU58 NGC. B-14, BB-122, R.3. Several reverse diagnostics, including a short lowest arrow that only extends to the center of the left foot of the N in UNITED, help identify this scarce variety. The present example is near-Mint, kept from a finer designation by only a trace of friction that crosses the silver-gray high points. The fields, which retain virtually all of their original luster, shine beneath subtle cyan and champagne patina. The strike is crisp, and the surfaces are surprisingly mark-free, with only a handful of wispy flaws on each side. NGC has certified 43 finer examples (11/08).
