Near-Mint 1799 8x5 Stars Dollar, B-23, BB-159

1799 $1 8x5 Stars, B-23, BB-159, R.4 AU58 NGC. Die State III. The only 1799 obverse die which displays 8 stars on the left side, and 5 stars to the right. On the reverse, the U in UNITED is defective at the upper left. In this later die state, there are heavy die clash marks from the tops of the clouds that are evident above the date and near star 13, along with extra incuse denticles between star 13 and the bust. This is a boldly detailed example that only shows partial striking weakness on the eagle's neck and breast feathers. A few pinscratches and minor abrasions are noted on the obverse. Listed as a distinct variety on page 205 of the 2008 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 24X7, Variety PCGS# 40063, Base PCGS# 6881)
