Lot Description
1802/1 $1 Wide Date AU53 NGC. B-3, BB-234, R.3. Bowers Die State III. Blushes of lemon-gold toning adorn this well struck silver dollar. Glimpses of gunmetal-blue occasionally visit the margins. The partly lustrous surfaces are lightly abraded save for a faint mark near star 8. BB-234 is readily attributed by the die lump in the upper right obverse field. More 1802/1 varieties exist (five) than 1801 varieties (four) or 1802 normal date varieties (three, including the novodel proof).
