Lot Description
1799/8 $1 13 Stars Reverse VF25 PCGS. B-2, BB-143, High R.4. Die State II. Overdate; 13 reverse stars, leaf point below left side of I. This variety is the scarcest of the 1799/8 overdates, with only about 100 examples known, although Dave Bowers estimated the population to be 250 to 450 coins. The overdate feature means that additional demand exists, thus the B-2 variety is very difficult to locate. This example is a later die state with reverse cracks through ATES OF AME. Medium gray surfaces with traces of champagne toning on each side. A few light abrasions are noted on each side, but the overall appearance is exceptional for the grade. Ex: I. Kleinman (4/2001). From The William Luebke Collection.
