Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9, Wide Date MS61 NGC. B-23, BB-105, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. The reverse die is lapped near cloud 3, but the curl atop Liberty's hair is complete. A crisply struck and highly desirable Mint State representative. Ice-blue and sea-green intermingle across both sides, and satin luster encompasses the devices and legends. Impressively free from the marks that generally accompany Bust dollars, aside from a thin, faint line in the field in front of the profile. BB-105 is relatively available in terms of the total number of survivors, but as Bowers noted in 1993, "most are in lower grades. In AU and Mint State grades it is rare." As of (3/08), NGC has certified only two Mint State examples as BB-105, the present lot and an MS65. From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars.
