Lot Description
1800 $1 12 Arrows MS61 PCGS. B-17a, BB-196, R.1. Bowers-Borckardt Die State IV, termed "scarce" by that reference, with obverse die crack through star 6 and extending to the hair ribbon. An engraving mistake put only 12 arrows in the eagle's claw on the reverse, creating a popular (if readily available) variety that is elusive in AU and better. The present piece is immensely lustrous with intriguing color. The centers are rich steel-gray with glimpses of gold, while the margins have brighter blue and champagne shadings. The single finest example of the variety certified by PCGS (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
