Description

Exceptional 1799 B-23, BB-159 Dollar, AU55

1799 $1 8x5 Stars AU55 PCGS. CAC. B-23, BB-159, R.4. The engraver must have begun entering stars at the right side of the die (left side of the coin), and when he finished, realized that he put one extra star on that side, and had to compromise, placing just five stars on the other side. The result in 1799 was a blundered die, leading to the 21st century result of a remarkable and highly desirable variety. Its desirability as a variety is only trumped by the quality of this piece, a splendid Choice AU dollar with original medium gray surfaces and exceptional iridescent toning.(Registry values: P1) (PCGS# 6881)
