Lot Description
1802/1 $1 Wide Date XF45 NGC. B-9, BB-235, R.5. The rare Bolender-9 did not appear in Haseltine's type table, and the variety went undiscovered until 1950, when Milferd Bolender himself found an example in the Marmaduke Fox collection. The variety remains very scarce today. The present piece features apple-green and golden-brown toning, and remaining luster dominates the borders and devices. The slightly cloudy fields exhibit no mentionable marks. Ex: Albany Collection (Heritage, 9/02), lot 7873, which realized $4,140. From The William Luebke Collection.
