Lot Description
1799 $1 7x6 Stars AU50 PCGS. B-10, BB-163, R.2. Bowers-Borckardt Die State IV, or perhaps even later, which would be remarkable, as the reverse die is shattered in State IV. A radial crack from the border disfigures the O in OF on this rare die state. This die state is fascinating, with a lightly cracked obverse die that was in its fifth use of six varieties, combined with a shattered reverse die that was used only for this single variety. This lovely AU specimen has considerable light silver luster with delicate gold toning and few marks on either side.
