Lot Description
1803 $1 Large 3 Fine 12 NGC. B-3, BB-256, R.2. The rich milky-lavender patina is framed by peripheral golden-brown and aqua-blue color. Despite the relatively low grade, mint luster abounds and is prooflike in nature. The strike was not sharp, which accounts in large part for the flat appearance of the devices. There are a few minor abrasions in the right obverse field. Probably lightly cleaned long ago. Struck from rotated dies.
