Lot Description
1801 $1 B-3, BB-213, R.3, XF40 NGC. A tiny dot is visible under magnification just to the left of the center dot, identifying the obverse. On the reverse, a point of a star touches the outside of the eagle's beak and the right foot of the T's is missing. Pleasing slate-gray overlies the devices, which contrast nicely against the deep amber toning that drapes the fields. This evenly worn representative is well-defined with only minor softness on the eagle's wings and Liberty's hair. Plenty of luster remains in the fields and gives this piece great eye appeal. From The Menlo Park Collection.
