Description:
Late State 1799/8 B-3, BB-141 Dollar, AU58
Curious 15 Stars Reverse
1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse AU58 PCGS. CAC. B-3, BB-141, R.3. Die State III or later. The 1799/8 overdate obverse was united with three different reverse dies, including this blundered reverse with an incorrect star count. Somehow, the engraver managed to place 15 stars in the constellation above the eagle, rather than the standard 13 count. Those stars were arranged in rows of seven and six, with one on each side of the eagle's head. Realizing the mistake, he struck upon an ingenious solution, enlarging the first and last clouds to cover two stars. However, he left just enough of the points from those stars visible, confirming his initial error.
This late die state piece has amazing surfaces with frosty mint luster beneath considerable gold toning, accompanied by steel blue on the high points. The obverse is mostly toned, the reverse with much intermingled silver brilliance. Trivial surface marks on each side are consistent with the grade. Population: 9 in 58, 8 finer (3/09).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24X8, PCGS# 6883)
