Lot Description
1799 $1 8X5 Stars VF20 NGC. B-23, BB-159, R.2. The only die marriage which has just five stars on the right side of the obverse, while eight stars are crowded along the left border. Traces of luster seem to cling to protected areas, although the cheek, bust truncation, and the eagle's upper right wing have noticeable wear. E PLURIBUS UNUM is legible, and the lower wings and hair tresses are surprisingly detailed. The lower right obverse field has a few wispy slide marks, and a couple of inconsequential rim dings are barely worthy of mention.
