Lot Description
1799 $1 MS61 NGC. B-8, BB-165, R.2. The inner ray of star 10 is doubled, and the N of UNITED repunched over an inverted N. Die State II. The N of UNITED was first punched in upside down, or the I was punched too close as an extra serif shows on the lower right of the N. The reverse die shows light clash marks near OF from Liberty's drapery, and a light die crack shows through star seven into LIB of LIBERTY. Attractive steel-gray and golden patina shows over each side and is accented with mottled russet color near the base of the obverse. A substantial amount of spotty russet-blue toning has accumulated on the reverse. The peripheral details are sharp and well defined. Some weakness is noted above the eagle's head and on Liberty's hair. The underlying fields exhibit bright, satiny luster. Bust dollar enthusiasts will pay close attention to this important offering.
