R.5 1799 Irregular Date Dollar
13 Stars Reverse, XF45
The Reiver Plate Coin

1799 $1 Irregular Date, 13 Stars Reverse XF45 NGC. B-13, BB-151, R.5. Die State II. Irregular date, first 9 high, leans left; die flaws at two rightmost stars. Reiver die state a. This is the Reiver plate coin for the variety, both obverse and reverse. This R.5 piece is one of the rarest of the 1799 varieties. Few are found at this grade level, and perhaps two or three qualify in AU and a half-dozen or so in XF.
The present specimen is attractive medium gray with splashes of copper-gold around the periphery. Scattered handling marks, but none are deep or distracting. An important coin for the specialist, and worthy of any top-notch variety collection. This reverse die was only used to coin this variety, although none reported have any significant die breaks. In this die state, however, there are "die flaws" (Bowers-Borckardt) near the rightmost stars, in the form of lumpish fillings between stars 6 and 11.
Ex: Batchelder (3/1968); Jules Reiver (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 23578.
From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars.
