Lot Description
1799 $1 7x6 Stars, AU55 PCGS. B-10, BB-163, R.2. Bowers Die State III. A few areas of purple-gray toning visit primarily brilliant, silver-white surfaces of this sharply detailed early dollar. The coin displays a large amount of remaining mint luster -- both at the margins, but also across the central details of Liberty's hair strands and over the entire reverse. Minute hairlines are visible with a glass, no doubt the reason for the largely untoned surfaces, but the generous luster was enough to satisfy PCGS and makes this a truly appealing example. Population: 2 in 55, 4 finer (2/14).
