Description:
Near-Mint 1799/8 15 Stars Reverse Dollar
B-3, BB-141
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse AU58 NGC. B-3, BB-141, R.3. Die State III. The last 9 in the date was punched over a previous numeral 8. There are 15 stars on the upper reverse, but, as Bowers notes in his Encyclopedia, "to the uninitiated the two extra stars are not readily seen, at least at first." It seems that the engraver punched in too many stars, and attempted to cover his mistake by grossly enlarging two of the clouds above. He mostly succeeded, but telltale bits of the excess stars' points remain evident. This is a highly impressive specimen, despite the few minor flaws that prevent it from receiving a Mint State grade. The predominant russet-gold toning across both sides is interspersed with areas of steel-gray color. The design elements are crisply struck, except for parts of the eagle's head, breast feathers, and shield. This die variety is the most available of the three overdates of the year, and AU examples are only very scarce, rather than rare.
From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars. (Variety PCGS# 40064, Base PCGS# 6883)
