Lot Description
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse -- Artificial Toning -- NGC Details. AU. B-3, BB-141, R.3. Die State III. Three varieties of the 1799 over 8 overdate are known, and this piece represents the variant with 15 stars on the reverse. The strike is even and bold, with notable sharpness seen on the stars and the central reverse. Iridescent aquamarine and green-gold hues blend across each side, with strong underlying mint luster. NGC suggests the patina is of artificial origin, though the overall eye appeal is pleasing and no significant abrasions are seen with the unaided eye.
