Description

Remarkable MS62 1800 Dollar
Scarce B-8, BB-188 Variety

1800 $1 MS62 NGC. B-8, BB-188, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II with a light die crack through the AMER in AMERICA. A magnificent coin with unbroken luster across the devices and fields. The dappled chestnut-gold and olive obverse toning is attractive. The reverse features rich steel-blue, straw-gold, and forest-green. A couple of faint obverse marks near the first three stars are mentioned solely as identifiers. Generally well struck, although the centers show minor incompleteness. This is likely due to the sinking of the reverse die, which in turn presumably caused an early retirement of BB-188 and explains its scarcity.
As of (3/08), NGC has certified just eight examples of BB-188. The present piece is the single highest graded among those, and is the only one graded Mint State. The next finest NGC-certified examples of BB-188 are both AU55. Of course, there are likely a number of BB-188 dollars lurking unattributed in NGC holders, particularly those graded more than five years ago.
Ex: Stack's (3/1996), lot 506.
From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars. (NGC ID# 24X9, Variety PCGS# 40074, Base PCGS# 6887)
