    MS62 1798 Heraldic Eagle Dollar
    Wide Date, Pointed 9, B-23a, BB-105

    1798 $1 Large Eagle, Wide Date, Pointed 9 MS62 ANACS. B-23a, BB-105, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III from a lapped obverse die. The present example is third-listed in the classic Bowers-Borckardt reference under "Notable Specimens," described as "Uncirculated, sharp strike, perfectly centered, lovely bluish golden patina!" We can add that satin luster is comprehensive and rolls across the fields. Marks are virtually absent, and the eye appeal is remarkable. Besides its dappled steel-blue and tan-brown toning, this piece can be identified by a small mint-made strike-through near the reverse rim at 5 o'clock. Our auction archives, which date to 1991, show only a single prior Uncirculated appearance of B-23, the ANACS MS61 Richard J. Chouinard example from our 2005 FUN Signature.
    Ex: Kagin's, 6/1970, lot 614.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 24X6, PCGS# 6877)
