Sharp 1799 7x6 Stars Dollar
MS62, B-8a, BB-165

1799 $1 7x6 Stars MS62 NGC. B-8a, BB-165, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. The following diagnostics confirm the variety: Liberty's mouth is open, a die chip is located between star 9 and the border, the highest curl is centered more under the right half of the E in LIBERTY, there are die flaws inside and to top right of final S in STATES, AME of AMERICA join at lowest part, and the N of UNITED was first punched in upside down, or the I was punched too close as an extra serif shows on the lower right of the N. Both the obverse and reverse display the cracks indicated in the 1993 Bowers-Borckardt reference, confirming Die State II.
NGC has currently (3/08) certified 23 coins of the BB-165 variety, mostly in grades from Very Good through Extremely Fine 45. Four examples rate About Uncirculated grades, and three Mint State (including the present and one other MS62, and an MS63).
Dusky, medium-intensity golden-gray patination adorns both sides, each of which displays soft luster and whispers of sky-blue and lavender. A well executed strike leaves strong definition on the design elements, save for the usual softness on the breast feathers and on the upper-right reverse stars. The devices are nicely centered, and most of the dentilation is strong. The few minute contact marks scattered over the obverse do not detract from this coin's overall eye appeal. We mention those in front of the forehead solely for pedigree purposes.
Ex: Stack's (3/1996), lot 503.
