Description:
Important MS61 1798 Dollar
Large Eagle, Wide Date B-22, BB-104

Rare Late Die State
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9, Wide Date MS61 NGC. B-22, BB-104, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State V, with a faint crack through UNITED in addition to the more obvious reverse vertical die crack from 12 o'clock to the shield. That crack has formed an internal retained die break from the base of the E through the star directly below. The obverse die is clashed but lacks any cracks. This die state was considered unverified in 1993.
The present example has satin luster and is moderately toned cream-gray and almond-gold. A faint mark is detected beneath Liberty's chin, but there are no other remotely relevant abrasions. The strike is sharp aside from the first U in UNUM and the eagle's breast feathers. An exceptional representative of this elusive variety. In his 1993 silver dollar encyclopedia, Bowers stated that "above XF, specimens are very rare. The variety may be unknown in Mint State." NGC BB-104 Census: 1 in 61, 1 finer (3/08).
From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars. (PCGS# 40021)
