Lot Description
1802/1 $1 Narrow Date VF20 NGC. B-4, BB-232, R.3. The BB-232 variety is recognized by the position of the first 1 in the date firmly touching the curl and the 2 struck over a 1. This piece shows moderate, even wear on the design elements, with all important detail still intact. The surfaces are blanketed by silver-gray and blue-steel patina, with a few hints of gold and amber. A few traces of mint luster remain and a small rim bruise is present on the reverse at 9 o'clock.
