Lot Description
1801 $1 MS62 NGC. B-1, BB-211, R.3. A late die state that corresponds most closely with Bowers-Borckardt Die State IV; it shows the multiple die cracks through STA(TES) and faintly through the right-side clouds and the right (facing) wing to the first A in AMERICA, though it does not show the continuation to ME and the rim as stated in the reference. This unusually well-preserved piece is pleasingly detailed and modestly marked for the grade assigned. The obverse has a silver-gray base with light blue-green and gold elements intermixed, while the reverse has the former color at the margins around a peach-tinged center. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
