Irresistible 1799 Silver Dollar, B-12a, BB-160, MS64

1799 $1 7x6 Stars MS64 PCGS. Ex: Flannagan. B-12a, BB-160, R.3. Die State III. The B-12, BB-160 die marriage is considered one of the two "no berry" varieties, although two tiny berries can be seen with close examination, and an additional short stem is also visible in the olive branch. The two "no berry" varieties are from the third and fourth use of the reverse die after it was resurfaced. Although a small number of finer pieces exist, this specimen is clearly in the Condition Census for the variety. It provides an excellent compromise between high quality and affordability, being virtually Gem quality at a much lower price, ideal for the collector who demands high grade and excellent aesthetic appeal.
This irresistible coin boasts strong mint luster beneath blue and gold peripheral toning on the obverse, the reverse with vibrant gold toning over the entire span of the coin. The frosty surfaces show a microscopic texture that is typical of the die variety, notably on Liberty. A perfect type coin for the collector who demands eye appeal, this specimen has top-notch surfaces and a strong strike. No adjustment marks, surface abrasions, or rim bumps distract the eye. A tiny planchet flaw that affects four or five dentils above the BE of LIBERTY will serve to identify this near-Gem in its future appearances. Population: 15 in 64, 5 finer (2/09).
