Description:
Bowers-Borckardt Plate 1798 B-17 Silver Dollar
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Five Stripes XF45 NGC. B-17, BB-101, High R.5. Die State V. Reiver State c. Pointed 9, Line Star Pattern. Five shield lines, the only Pointed 9 dollar with this feature. Listed in the Guide Book as "Pointed 9, Five Vertical Lines" and the only die marriage that matches this description. Thus, anyone who collects early dollars by "Redbook variety" must own an example of this combination. Fortunately, two examples are offered in the present sale. This example is a late die state with die cracks outside the stars to the left, and a pronounced bulge in the left obverse field. Bowers-Borckardt Plate Coin. A thin scratch from the nose to star 8 identifies this as the plate coin in the BB reference. Pleasing gray-brown toning with lighter silver color on the devices. Both sides have the usual insignificant imperfections expected on a lightly circulated early dollar. A rare die combination with only about 30 to 40 examples known, despite a higher estimate of 70 to 120 examples by Bowers. This is one of the notable specimens listed in the Silver Dollar Encyclopedia. This is a nicely centered specimen with excellent obverse and reverse detail.
