Lot Description
1802/1 $1 Wide Date XF40 NGC. B-3, BB-234, R.3. This is one of three different die marriages of the popular 1802/1 Overdate Dollar. The 1 can be seen clearly under the 2 in the date. The reverse die was also used to strike one variety dated 1801 and will be used again striking dollars dated 1803. A bit softly struck in the center of the obverse, but the surfaces are quite clean overall with the only noticeable flaw being a short abrasion below the bottom hair ribbon. Good portions of brilliance are seen on each side (more is evident on the reverse) with deep streaks of sea-green and gray toning on the obverse, the reverse primarily only shows coloration around the periphery.
