Lot Description
1802 $1 Narrow Date AU58 NGC. B-6, BB-241, R.1. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III, the usual state with lapped obverse die and missing hair detail. The 1802 Narrow Date is among the most accessible of all Heraldic Eagle reverse dollars, popular with both type and series enthusiasts. Though this near-Mint coin shows trifling wear across the high points, broadly semireflective luster remains largely intact with partial green-gold and blue overlay across a pale silver base. An example such as this points out the importance of grading by surface rather than detail, as the eagle's neck shows little of the usual feathering yet the power of the luster is undeniable.
