Description

Important 1799 B-5, BB-157 Dollar, MS61

1799 $1 7x6 Stars MS61 PCGS. B-5, BB-157, R.2. Die State III, with reverse die cracks. The reverse die is defective with the upper left serif of the U in UNITED missing, and that same feature is seen on two other reverse dies used to produce six varieties. BB-157 has the right edge of the upright of the E in STATES over the space between two clouds, BB-158 through 161 have the E in STATES centered over a cloud space, and BB-168 has the cloud space right of center below the E, along with a horizontal crack across the entire reverse die.
This lustrous Mint State piece has splendid ivory and gold color over satiny silver surfaces with excellent eye appeal. NGC certified the Eliasberg specimen as MS64, a coin that we offered four years ago. The next best example of B-5 in our auction archives is AU58. Only a handful of Mint State pieces are actually known, perhaps a dozen in all grades, including the present piece. An excellent opportunity.
From The Stan Burger Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24X7, PCGS# 6878)
