Lot Description
1799/8 $1 13 Stars Reverse VF35 PCGS. B-1, BB-142, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. This popular overdate is recognized by the undertype of the 8 below the last digit in the date and the star's ray pointing to the left outside of the U in PLURIBUS. The BB-142 is a slightly scarce variety, always in demand because of the prominent overdate. This problem-free Choice VF example displays pleasing dove-gray and golden-brown patina with a few traces of original mint luster. Population: 18 in 35, 59 finer (12/12).
