Lot Description
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse AU55 PCGS. B-3, BB-141, R.2. The B-3, though the only overdated 1799 obverse-15 star reverse die pairing, is relatively available in most grades and has long been a favorite of both variety and date collectors. This is a lovely AU coin that retains considerable mint luster. Both sides are covered with light gray-lilac toning that deepens to golden-russet around the outer devices. The obverse is generally well struck and there is a bit of highpoint detail lacking on the eagle's breast just above the shield. Minimal abrasions are present, and a loupe is needed to locate the ones that are on either side.
