Description:
Elusive 1799 B-15a, BB-152
Irregular Date Dollar, MS63
1799 $1 Irregular Date, 13 Stars Reverse MS63 PCGS. B-15a, BB-152, R.3. Die State IV. One of the three "Irregular Date" dollars of 1799, this particular obverse die is paired with the "Blundered Stars" reverse, so-called as some of the reverse stars overlap the clouds. It is the only 1799 variety with the reverse stars arranged in a line pattern as on certain 1798-dated dollars and was in fact struck from a leftover 1798 reverse die (B-24, BB-124). The obverse has numerous die cracks as described for B-15a, the late die state recorded in the Bolender reference. The reverse has a die crack from the stem end to the border on all examples of the B-15, the crack developing during its use in the previous year.
This glossy Mint State specimen easily merits Condition Census ranking and is nearly the finest known B-15. The Bowers-Borckardt reference lists a single MS60 coin from Auction '85 as the only Mint State coin in the Notable Specimens section.
The mint luster shimmers over each side and the surfaces are richly toned with even gray patina and strong underlying rose hues. Sharply struck on the obverse with especially strong hair details, there is just the slightest bit of softness evident on the reverse. There are no obvious or detracting abrasions on either side of this lovely, high grade early dollar. Population: 1 in 63, 0 finer (3/09).
