Description

Popular 15-Stars 1799/8 Dollar, AU53

1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse AU53 NGC. B-3, BB-141, R.3. This variety of the 1799/8 overdate can be distinguished from the others by the "15 Star Reverse." Two "extra" stars were punched into the reverse die, then the engraver tried to "cover" his mistake by enlarging the clouds over the first and last stars in the top row. This variety is listed in The Redbook and is in demand from both the type collector and die variety specialist alike. This is a very pleasing example of this unusual and popular variety. Each side is evenly covered with light gray-golden toning with significant underlying luster remaining around the devices. Perfectly centered with a couple of tiny abrasions on Liberty's neck and a long, backward check-marked abrasion in the same area.
From the Albany Collection. (NGC ID# 24X8, PCGS# 6883)
