Lot Description
1802/1 $1 Narrow Date, B-4, BB-232, R.3 XF45 PCGS. CAC. The top left serif of the 1 in the date touches the hair curl, and the base of the B in LIBERTY is slightly below the E on this variety. This example is Die State II, as identified by the die crack on the bust near star 13. The obverse is a 50/50 mix of gunmetal color and light gray patina, while the reverse is a slightly darker shade of gray. Plenty of luster is present in the protected areas, which is remarkable considering the grade. The surfaces are exceptionally clean, and the strike is crisp, with the heraldic eagle particularly sharp. An interesting example of this prominent overdate.
