Lot Description
1799 $1 7x6 Stars AU55 PCGS. B-5, BB-157, R.2. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II, cracks from tail feathers through STAT to eagle's left (facing) wing and onward through STATES and to the rim. The slight indent to the top of the 1 in the date and faint die clash "waves" above the 9s in the date, combined with the reverse showing an incomplete upper-left serif on the U in UNITED, serve to attribute the B-5, BB-157 die pairing. Well-struck and fairly lustrous surfaces are attractive underneath a deep layer of mostly drab olive-gray patina with some lighter pinkish-gray areas.
