Description:
1798 B-27, BB-113 Dollar, MS62
Heraldic Eagle Reverse
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Pointed 9 MS62 PCGS. B-27, BB-113, R.2. The reported mintage of Draped Bust dollars in 1798 was 327,536 pieces, the second-largest of the series. The mintage was divided between two major design types, the Small Eagle Reverse, of which 2 die varieties are known, and the Heraldic Eagle Reverse, for which 31 varieties have been discovered. The present coin represents the BB-113 variety of the Heraldic Eagle type, identified by the high 8 in the date and the die crack from the reverse rim through the second S in States, through the top of OF and wing tip, to the rim above A. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II.
The coin offered here is a rare MS62 specimen with sharply detailed design elements and glossy surfaces that retain much original mint luster under iridescent lavender and gold toning. The profile of Liberty shows an odd outline, as if the coin had been struck multiple times, but there is no sign of doubling on the reverse. Population: 4 in 62, 11 finer (6/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24X6, PCGS# 6873)
