Marvelous 1803 B-6, BB-255 Dollar, MS62

1803 $1 Large 3 MS62 NGC. B-6, BB-255, R.2. Die State II+. The obverse has an extremely faint hairline crack connecting stars 8 through 11. The Large 3 in the date is diagnostic for this plentiful variety, probably the commonest variety of the date. It is available in all grades through AU, but full Mint State examples are extremely rare. The reverse is a multi-year die, like that on BB-252. Like the other reverse, this die was used to coin seven different varieties dated 1801, 1802, and 1803, and here it is in the latest stage of use. Aside from some minor flowlines that were a part of general use, the reverse seems to remain in remarkable condition, with no evidence of die clashing, lapping, or cracking.
Undoubtedly a Condition Census example, this piece might arguably be called the finest of the variety. Only five Mint State coins are listed in Bowers' record of Notable Specimens. This example is unlisted in the Silver Dollar Encyclopedia due to its conservative grade of AU in the Stack's catalog.
A boldly defined piece with exceptional detail on each side, although the lower left obverse border is narrow and indistinct. Aside from the usual scattered surface marks that are entirely consistent with the grade, the surfaces are extraordinary with full luster and prooflike fields. Both sides have deep steel-blue, lilac, and heavy gold toning, with iridescent splashes.
Ex: Stack's (10/1986), lot 104.
