Lovely 1801 B-2, BB-212 Dollar, Near-Mint State1801 $1 AU58 NGC. B-2, BB-212, R.3. Die State II. The "double collar" above the bust of Liberty is diagnostic of this die state, as is the extremely bold incusation of a single cloud above the date, followed by fainter incusations into the obverse left field. On the reverse a tiny die crack extends from the second-highest left wing feather to the rim. LIBERTY and the eagle's tail, in particular, are weakly struck. Bowers-Borckardt suggests this is due to clashing causing misalignment of the faces.
This lovely near-Mint State piece boasts premium appeal, a combination of the consistent, smooth grayish-gold surfaces and a relative lack of any singular signs of contact, save for a tiny field tick before Liberty's nose.
From The Queller Family Collection of Silver Dollars. (Variety PCGS# 40084, Base PCGS# 6893)
