Description:
Lovely 1799 B-16, BB-158 Dollar, MS62
Unusual Die State
1799 $1 7x6 Stars MS62 NGC. B-16, BB-158, R.2. Intermediate Die State II/III (Bolender 16-a). The left-side stars are distant from the curl and L, while the right-side stars are close to the Y and bust tip. The Close 17 obverse.
While this coin shows bold clashing, most of it recorded in Bowers-Borckardt, some of the die cracks listed for Die State III are not present. In addition, especially bold clashing is visible between the bust tip and star 13 from (O)F on the reverse. The incuse "waves" above the date are prominent, and clashing is visible in several other areas of both obverse and reverse. But what makes this coin interesting is that it appears to be one of the first strikes after the initial clashing that apparently later caused some of the many die cracks this variety is noted for--but before most of those cracks formed.
In addition to its technical appeal, this piece boasts superlative silver-gold, lustrous surfaces dappled with steel-blue and pinkish-gold. A truly lovely early dollar.
From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars. (Variety PCGS# 40050, Base PCGS# 6878)
