Description:
Finest NGC-Certified B-3, BB-234
1802/1 Wide Date Dollar, MS62
1802/1 $1 Wide Date MS62 NGC. B-3, BB-234, R.3. The overdate is wide, with the most space between the 8 and 0, there is a die chip in the field opposite the space between stars 8 and 9 about level with Liberty's eye, star pairs 1 and 2 and 6 and 7 are more widely spaced than any others on the left, stars 8 and 9 are more widely spaced than any others on the right, the point of the leftmost arrowhead is under the center of the left upright of the N in UNITED, there is a spur on the curved part of the D, and the leaf point is under center of the I in AMERICA.
David Bowers, in his Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States, estimates 400 to 750 specimens exist of the BB-234 overdate, mostly in circulated grades, with Very Fine being average. Two MS60 coins are identified in a listing of "Notable Specimens," along with four About Uncirculated coins.
NGC reports having certified 10 examples of the BB-234 variety to date (3/08): one in Very Good, three coins in Fine, three pieces in Extremely Fine, two About Uncirculated examples, and a solitary Mint State specimen, the MS62 in the current offering!
Bright silvery surfaces display champagne-gold patina imbued with blushes of sky-blue and tan-gray, and an attentive strike brings out uniformly bold delineation on the design elements; even the eagle's breast feathers are sharp! A few minor obverse handling marks likely preclude a finer grade. A small carbon spot to the upper left of the first A in AMERICA identifies the coin. Overall, this piece displays great technical quality and aesthetic appeal.
Ex: Stack's (privately, 2/1982).
