Lot Description
1802/1 $1 Narrow Date AU55 PCGS. B-4, BB-232, R.4. The 1 in the date touches the curl nearby, and a curious die crack near star 13 appears as a wedge-shaped depression on the struck coin. On the reverse a crack runs from the eagle's second feather to about 10 o'clock on the rim, and a leaf tip ends below the left side of I in AMERICA. Narrow overdate, 1 joins curl; leaf point below left base of I. The obverse has a light crack at the bust near star 13 and the reverse has a die crack from the second feather to the border at 10 o'clock. A scarce variety, here represented by a Choice AU specimen with choice lilac-blue surfaces, good luster, and huge eye appeal. Moderate planchet adjustment marks on the reverse fail to diminish the appeal.
