Lot Description
1799 $1 Irregular Date, 13 Stars VF35 NGC. B-13, BB-151, R.5. This "Irregular Date" variety is very rare and seldom seen in the marketplace. Bowers estimates that only 40-75 pieces are believed extant today in all grades, most of which are clustered in the VF grade range. This variety is distinguished by a speck of die rust above the E in STATES and die flaws between and under the two lower stars on the far right. The highpoints are gray-brilliant, providing strong contrast on each side, and some golden-brown and sea-green toning is seen at the border areas and over much of the reverse. The most obvious mark is a cut on Liberty's head. A very rare opportunity for the early Dollar specialist. From The Lexington Collection.
