Lot Description
1799 $1 8x5 Stars VF30 PCGS. B-23, BB-159, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. The deep cobalt-blue fields cede to rich olive and russet borders. This is an evenly circulated example that still displays hints of luster within the design crevices. Inspection with a lens fails to find any consequential contact. B-23 is the sole 8x5 stars variety, and for that reason it receives separate Guide Book pricing.
