Lot Description
1800 $1 AU55 NGC. B-5, BB-189, R.5. Ex: Hesselgesser. Bowers-Borckardt Die State I. Dr. Hesselgesser owns the all-time finest PCGS Registry set of early dollars by die marriage. A "die dot" inside the lower portion of the R in LIBERTY identifies the obverse, while the reverse show a somewhat similar die defect to the left of the second T in STATES. In this early die state, there are no visible die cracks on either side. Considerable luster remains on both sides, accented by light to medium gold in combination with peripheral blue on the obverse rim. Minor wear on the cheek and scroll determines the grade. Ex: Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 2069, which realized $8,050.
