    1799/8 15 Stars Reverse Dollar, MS61
    Scarce B-3, BB-141 Die Pair

    1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse MS61 NGC. B-3, BB-141, R.3. [Incorrectly labeled by NGC as a regular 1799, though the overdate is plain.] Bowers-Borckardt Die State IV, advanced deterioration of the die with a flaw from the midpoint of the M in AMERICA down to the eagle's wing. This is the 15 Star Reverse with the leftmost and rightmost clouds extending down to conceal two extraneous stars surrounding the eagle, not entirely successfully in the former's case. Both sides are softly lustrous under deep blue, violet, and rose patina. The obverse has a few old reed marks and a newer staple scratch to the right of Liberty's shoulder, but the reverse presents well and overall the MS61 designation is justified.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24X8, PCGS# 6883)
