1800 $1 12 Arrows AU55 NGC....
Beautiful 1800 12 Arrows Dollar, B-17, BB-196, AU551800 $1 12 Arrows AU55 NGC. B-17, BB-196, R.1. Die State IV. Known as the "collar" variety due to the distinctive clash mark along Liberty's upper bust line that marks Die State II. The B-17, BB-196 is almost always found in at least Die State II, although at least one piece is known from Die State I, without the clash mark.
This Die State IV is the latest observed for B-17. The markers for Die State III are present: On the obverse there is a hairline crack right of star 1 passing slightly into the field; there is a small crack between stars 11 and 12. On the reverse bold clashing from the obverse drapery is noted at S OF, but only the lower portion of the listed "crack from border through top of A, lower part of M, to end of branch" is present. The confirmation of Die State IV, however, moves back to the obverse, in the form of a prominent, smoothly curving die crack from star 6 to the back of the hair ribbon.
Pale rose and gold toning is evident over outstanding silver surfaces with nearly full luster on each side. A beautiful, sharply struck, and well-preserved early dollar.
Ex: Stack's (10/2003), lot 2726.
