1796 Small Date, Large Letters Dollar
B-4, BB-61, XF45, Scarce Die State III

1796 $1 Small Date, Large Letters XF45 PCGS. B-4, BB-61, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. This is one of three major Guide Book varieties for the year and popular as such. The two Small Date, Large Letters die pairings are the B-4, BB-61 and the B-6, BB-64. The present pairing shows the date small but wide, the Large Letters reverse showing TE in STATES close and a single berry under the first T in STATES. In this scarcer die state, the obverse shows only two tiny wisps of hair remaining on the foremost lock, and die lapping has effaced parts of the palm leaves at ICA on the reverse. The Choice XF grade level is the highest obtainable for the issue before the price of acquisition reaches into the five-digit range. Much appeal is evident here: Pinkish-gray surfaces show considerable luster remaining, and no mentionable contact or planchet adjustment marks appear.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 24X3, PCGS# 6860)
