Lot Description
1799 $1 7x6 Stars MS60 NGC. B-8, BB-165, R.3. Die State I, with the flaw at the final S visible, but not reverse die cracks. In practice, this variety is usually recognized by the small die flaws at the top of the S. The B-8, BB-165 die combination is relatively plentiful, although far from a common variety. Only a few Mint State pieces are known, including five that were listed in the Notable Specimens section of Dave Bowers' Silver Dollar Encyclopedia. This masterpiece has deep blue and iridescent toning over satiny, reflective surfaces. It is sharply struck, even at the centers, with exceptional eye appeal.
