Lot Description
1799/8 $1 13 Stars Reverse MS61 NGC. B-1, BB-142, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III, the most common, with significant crumbling of the reverse die at the I of AMERICA. Both the B-1 and B-2 varieties are very scarce, and since the 1799/8, 13 Stars Reverse type merits its own listing in the Guide Book, the collector going by that reference must acquire an example of both varieties. This Mint State representative of the former has soft, pleasing luster beneath dappled green-gold and lavender-violet patina. A few faint field marks near the chin appear only when viewed from exotic angles. Great overall eye appeal.
