Lot Description
1799 $1 7x6 Stars XF40 PCGS. B-16, BB-158, R.2. Bowers-Borckardt Die State I. The obverse and reverse display a strong strike from perfect dies, with no evidence of die clash, die lapping, or die cracks. All of the berries are bold. This variety has a distinctive appearance with the stars at the left distant from the curls and almost equally distant from the L in LIBERTY. Stars at the right, however, are close to the bust and the Y in LIBERTY. The date numerals 1 and 7 are close together. This well-detailed, attractive example has smooth, silver-gray surfaces and lighter silver color on the devices, with a bit of iridescence in the fields. The coin shows no significant abrasions or circulation marks worth mentioning, and it is well-centered within boldly denticled rims. Housed in a previous generation, green label holder.
