Lot Description
1802/1 $1 Wide Date AU50 NGC. B-3, BB-234. R.3. Die State II. This is one of three different die marriages of the popular 1802/1 overdate. There is a small raised crack in the field to the left of stars 8 and 9 that identifies this obverse die. This is a scarcer die state per Bowers, with some of the arrowheads disconnected. The obverse is toned medium gray in the centers changing to a darker gray toward the rims, giving Liberty a slight "cameo" appearance. The reverse is toned a medium to darker gray color intermixed with gold and blue. Luster is visible on both sides, but is especially pronounced on the reverse. From the Michael Hering Collection.
