1801 $1 B-1, BB-211, R.3 AU55 NGC. CAC....
Satiny 1801 B-1, BB-211 Dollar, AU551801 $1 B-1, BB-211, R.3 AU55 NGC. CAC. A faint die crack is evident on the obverse, just to the left of the 1 in the date. The reverse shows several faint cracks, but no evidence of die bulges that developed in the terminal die state. The BB-211 die combination was the first of four 1801 varieties coined, and probably the only one actually struck in 1801.
An amazing example of the scarce date, with satiny pewter-gray luster, displaying subtle champagne and pale blue toning on each side. Only a trace of rub on the highest points of the design are evident. Only two or three finer examples of the variety are known, but apparently none that are fully Mint State. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24XA, PCGS# 6893)
