Lot Description
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse XF45 PCGS. CAC. B-3, BB-141, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III, a late die state with clash marks and cracks on the reverse. The reverse die was initially engraved with 15 stars, an error that was corrected by enlarging the left- and right-most clouds to cover those stars, although points of each star are still visible. This Choice XF specimen has attractive light gray surfaces with delicate gold and violet overtones. Noticeable luster remains near the borders. Population: 28 in 45, 57 finer (3/12).
