Lot Description
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse MS62 NGC. B-3, BB-141, R.3. The 1799/8 overdated obverse die paired with the blundered 15 Star reverse that includes two points projecting from an oversized cloud at the far left. This double-blundered die pair is the sole source of 1799/8 15 Star Reverse coins, which makes it a Guide Book staple. Fortunately for collectors, the variety is accessible (if rare) in Mint State grades. This MS62 piece is one such example, strongly detailed with subtle luster that persists through gold-gray toning with occasional deeper elements. Aside from a few short abrasions in the fields, a minimally marked coin for the grade. Census: 10 in 62, 12 finer (2/10).
