Lot Description
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 VF20 PCGS. B-12, BB-120, R.4. This is the only time this obverse die was employed and it can be identified by several diagnostics: Liberty's lips are open, the date is closely spaced, and on this Die State III example there is a die crack between the 7 and the 9 in the date. Lovely gunmetal-gray patina endows the surfaces of this minimally marked piece. The stars on the reverse are soft, as typically seen, but the rest of the details are well-defined. A pleasing example of this scarce variety.
