Lot Description
1800 $1 AU53 NGC. B-13, BB-193, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State I, rare, no die cracks or clashes, far rarer than later die states. The recent Bowers updated reference calls this "three times or more scarcer than Die State III." This piece appears drab-gray but under a light reveals a wealth of mint luster remaining underneath olive-gold surfaces. No mentionable impairments or planchet adjustment marks appear, and the strike is bold, especially on the intricate reverse design details.
