    Conditionally Rare 1799/8
    13 Stars Reverse Dollar
    AU58 B-2, BB-143

    1799/8 $1 13 Stars Reverse AU58 NGC. B-2, BB-143, R.4. Die State II. This variety shares an obverse die with the two other 1799/8 overdates, but the three versions show subtle differences in the state of the obverse. As noted in the Bowers-Borckardt silver dollar Encyclopedia of 1993: "Die flaws as on BB-141, plus some new die flaws in and around the date and between star seven and the L in LIBERTY extending to the hair above the ribbon." The reverse shows 13 stars above the eagle, and a thick die crack down through curved part of D and showing at base. This is a gorgeous near-Mint example that displays considerable luster and lovely original toning that incorporates reddish-gold and gray hues that are pleasingly intermingled together. The coin is well struck with only minor wear and scattered, faint marks and pinscratches. This variety is rare in AU condition or finer.
