Lot Description
1799 $1 7x6 Stars AU55 PCGS. B-17, BB-164, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. The obverse die was used to strike six different die varieties, with the BB-164 specifically identified by the relapping of the dies to remove the "pocket" at the throat and the die crack through the last four stars. This attractive Choice AU specimen is sharply detailed at the peripheries, but the centers show some of the softness always seen on this variety. The lightly marked surfaces retain much original mint luster, under pleasing golden-brown, sea-green, and blue toning. From The Teich Family Collection.
