Lot Description
1802 $1 Wide Date VF35 NGC. B-5, BB-242, R.5. Much scarcer than the Narrow Date variety, the Wide Date, non-overdate Bolender-5 is usually encountered in VF and XF grades. Deep lavender patina bathes this attractive Early Dollar. Although wear is evident on the portrait, nearly all of E PLURIBUS UNUM is clear, and the major devices are richly detailed. A small dig to the left of the lowest hair curl prevents an XF designation. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2004), lot 7960, which realized $2,645.
