Rare Mint State 1799 Irregular Date, Reverse of 1798 Bust Dollar

1799 $1 Irregular Date MS63 PCGS. 13 Stars. B-15a, BB-152. Die State IV. One of the three "Irregular Date" Dollars of 1799, this particular obverse die is paired with the "Fifteen 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). This glossy Mint State specimen easily merits Condition Census ranking and is likely the finest known B-15. 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, 1 finer (10/05).
Ex Heritage Long Beach Sale (February, 2005), lot 7328.
From The Jack Lee Collection, III(#6880) (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 24X7, PCGS# 6880)
