Scarce 8x5 Stars 1799 Dollar
1799 $1 8x5 Stars AU53 PCGS. B-23, BB-159, R.4.
Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. Throughout the entire early silver
dollar series, this is the only die variety with the stars arranged
eight left and five right. It is a major Guide Book variety,
highly desired by specialists and general collectors alike. The
present example exhibits deep forest-green and dove-gray patina.
Liberty's cheek and the hair above the ear display wear, but luster
glimmers beneath the rich toning. No marks are obtrusive, and a
subtle spot between the RI in AMERICA merits only passing mention.
Population: 2 in 53, 4 finer (1/09).
