Lot Description
1800 $1 AU53 PCGS. B-14, BB-194, R.3. This is an example of the famous "Dotted Date" variety. It is called this because of the numerous die flaws (dots) around the first 0 in the date. As such it is a popular and important Redbook variety. This obverse die was only used to strike this one die variety, as was the reverse die. Well defined overall with especially strong definition on Liberty's trailing hair curls and stars on the right side of the obverse. The stars on the left side are somewhat weak, as is the plate coin in the BB reference. Good mint luster remains and each side has dusky gray patina with medium blue color surrounding each side. Very slightly abraded; in fact, there are no marks that are worthy of individual mention. From the Albany Collection.
