Lustrous 1799 B-12, BB-160 Dollar, MS63

1799 $1 7x6 Stars MS63 NGC. B-12a, BB-160, R.3. No berries in the branch, one of two varieties along with B-11 from this reverse die after the berries are lapped away. In earlier die states the reverse was used with B-16 and B-23 with the berries still intact. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. The obverse die is shattered, although not in the latest die state known. The obverse is cracked from the base of the 1 to the border below the 7, curving up the other direction into the field next to the inner point of star 1. Another short crack extends up from the border to the first 9, with branches left and right to the 7 and second 9. Just right of the date, a crack begins at the border and curves up to the drapery, with a branch extending further right to the drapery. A crack begins at the border near the bust tip and curves up through the right field to star 9. Other minor cracks are evident in the right obverse stars. The reverse, aside from the missing berries, has flowlines from letters to the border, but no evidence of die cracks, clash marks, or other signs of lapping.
The obverse has frosty mint luster beneath intense gold toning that deepens to russet and pale blue at the border. Some light silver-gray color is evident on the high points of the devices. The reverse also has frosty luster with considerable silver-gray, intermingled with gold, sea-green, and lilac toning. A few faint hairlines and minor abrasions are evident, preventing a higher grade.
From The Deb-Ann Collection.
