Lot Description
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse AU58 PCGS. B-3, BB-141, R.3. Ex Hesselgesser. A duplicate from the impressive Hesselgesser Collection, recorded on the PCGS Set Registry page. This is the famous 15 Stars Reverse variety with the reverse stars originally placed in rows of seven and six, with additional stars left and right of the eagle's head. Realizing that he erred, the engraver then enlarged the first and last clouds to hide the two extra stars, but points of each can still be seen. This lovely piece mottled golden-brown and pale blue toning sprinkled over bright ivory luster. Population: 9 in 58, 8 finer (3/09).
