Description:
Spectacular Near-Gem 1799 Dollar, B-8, BB-165
1799 $1 MS64 NGC. B-8, BB-165. R.3. Intermediate Die State I-II. The obverse and reverse dies for the 1799 B-8, BB-165 Dollar were used only to strike this die marriage. This example is struck from an intermediate state of the dies, with some die breaks forming on both the obverse and the reverse. There is a die break from the border through the highest two points of star 7 and through LIB of LIBERTY. On the reverse, a faint die break can be seen under magnification from CA in AMERICA through the stem and the eagle's tail feathers to the arrow fletchings and the U of UNITED.
As noted for this die marriage in Bowers' Silver Dollars of the United States, "The N in UNITED was initially cut upside down and later corrected; an extraneous serif from the error can be seen to the lower right of the N, and appears as a line between the bottoms of N and I." This shows very clearly on this well struck, Mint State specimen.
This specimen displays full cartwheel luster and mint frost over light silver surfaces. A few scattered marks are noted on both the obverse and reverse, and there are a number of light adjustment marks on the reverse, which are almost invisible to the unaided eye.
Bowers listed the Condition Census for the 1799 B-8, BB-165 Dollar as 63-62-60 (multiples). The finest known piece listed in Bowers' "Notable Specimens" was a specimen we offered in our 1988 ANA Convention Sale, and graded MS63. The specimen offered here is graded MS64 NGC and thus should rank high in the Condition Census today. (NGC ID# 24X7, PCGS# 6878)
