Lot Description
1800 $1 Wide Date, Low 8 XF45 NGC. B-10, BB-190, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. The Guide Book calls this "very wide date, low 8," as the last two digits are quite widely spaced with the 8 low. This is the most commonly seen die state, showing a crack from the left side of the C in AMERICA to the leftmost olive leaf. This sharply detailed Choice XF piece displays light-gray devices against slate-gray fields, a superlative example of the variety on problem-free surfaces. A coin that early dollar aficionados will love. From The Papio Collection.
