Lot Description
1800 $1 AU58 PCGS. B-13, BB-193, R.4. Die State III. This more advanced die state is described thus on page 382 of the Bowers-Borckardt silver dollar Encyclopedia: "Second clashing. Obverse with faded clashmarks from first clashing. No die cracks. Reverse with massive injury from second clashing. Now with raised lines through F and clouds 7 and 8 to stars below those clouds; clash marks in same position as Die State II, but now much bolder and more extensive." This is a beautiful example with nearly full luster and light steel-gray toning that yields to occasional splashes of lilac and russet on both sides. High point wear is minimal, and the only notable marks are located on Liberty's upper neck area, just below the jawline. An attractive and impressive specimen that qualifies as a low-end Condition Census coin, for the die variety. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 2340. From A Midwest Naval Officer's Collection of Early Dollars.
