Lot Description
1800 $1 B-13, BB-193, R.4, XF40 NGC. The obverse, which was used for this variety only, is attributed by the E in LIBERTY, which is slightly higher than the B, and also by the spacing of the stars. Severe clash marks on the reverse through the F in OF and the nearby stars, however, instantly identify this die marriage and indicate that it is Die State III. A die crack connects the tops of AMERICA and extends into the field, but the obverse has no cracks. Pleasing gunmetal-gray patina covers both sides of this interesting piece, with a few streaks of darker toning on each side. This minimally marked example has great eye appeal.
