Lot Description
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse AU50 NGC. B-3, BB-141, R.2. An attractive coin for the grade with well struck curls on Liberty and all the stars clear on the reverse. Silvery-gray with flecks of darker gold around the peripheral devices. No adjustment marks or rim dings are found. A very popular die pairing as this includes the naked eye overdate with the curious mega clouds which were enlarged to cover over the accidental two additional stars on the reverse. A glass will note the tiny star points peeking out from underneath the clouds closest to the tops of each wing on the eagle. Extensive die clashing as usually seen for this variety.
