Description:
Extraordinary 1799 B-8, BB-165 Dollar, MS64
1799 $1 7x6 Stars MS64 NGC. B-8, BB-165, R.3. Early die state. It is always a special treat to examine high-quality early dollars like this coin. Such pieces provide the opportunity to study intricate die detail and to consider the die state, an opportunity that doesn't exist with circulated examples. This example is an early die state, intermediate between Die State I and II in the Bowers Silver Dollar Encyclopedia. The obverse is equivalent to Die State II, also known as B-8a. The reverse is described as Die State I or B-8. It also exhibits a sharp strike, further enhancing the study opportunity.
The obverse has a single fine die crack from the border through the upper two points of star 7, continuing to the upright of L just below its center, the tip of the lower right serif of the same letter, the upright of I just below center, and terminating at the center of the upright of B. The die chip between star 9 and the border is extremely light and small. There are no other die cracks and no clash marks, although a faint bulge is evident in the field to the right of Liberty's neck. Aside from the die flaws at the top of the final S, there is no evidence of any reverse die cracks other than an extremely faint crack connecting the tops of CA. Faint clash marks from the bust are noted near O, and elsewhere on this die.
This is one of the finest examples of the variety that exists, to the best of our knowledge. It appears to be different than any of the "Notable Specimens" listed by Bowers. Both sides are sharply detailed and the impression is nicely centered. The reverse stars are especially bold and full borders are noted, although slightly narrow below the date. The surfaces have full silver brilliance with reflective fields and slight cameo contrast. A few faint hairlines are evident, and light adjustment marks are noted across parts of the design on the reverse. This is a remarkable near-Gem specimen that should be considered for more than just its impressive "grading number." Consideration should also be given to aesthetic appeal, often times more important than a high numeric grade. This piece combines both a high number grade with exceptional beauty. Census: 15 in 64, 8 finer (3/09), this population for all 1799 Normal Date varieties.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 24X7, PCGS# 6878)
