Description

1798 Bust Dollar, Semiprooflike AU58
'Blundered Stars' B-24a, BB-124

1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 AU58 PCGS. B-24a, BB-124, R.2. Die State III with several obverse cracks. The reverse has 13 stars arranged in line pattern, and the two central stars in the top row overlap the clouds, giving this die the "Blundered Stars" nickname. The reverse continued in use the following year for 1799 B-15, BB-152. It is possible that the later die states (States III through V) were struck in 1799.

Although this variety is rather common, most survivors are in lower circulated grades, and those in AU or Mint State grades are elusive. This specimen has brilliant semiprooflike silver surfaces with satiny luster and a hint of champagne toning. All of the design elements are nicely brought up, except for weakness on three stars on the reverse.
Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2009), lot 2547.
