Lot Description
1799 $1 Irregular Date, 15 Stars Reverse VF35 PCGS. B-4, BB-153, R.4. The well-known blundered reverse with 15 stars instead of the traditional 13. The engraver tried to hide the error by enlarging the first and last cloud to engulf two stars, but points of the errant stars are still visible. This lavender-gray example has a few faint obverse field marks and the centers are slightly soft, but the overall sharpness and eye appeal is undeniable. Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2007), lot 946.
