    Rare Double Struck 1800 Dollar, XF45

    1800 $1--Double Struck, Second Strike 15% Off Center--XF45 PCGS. B-15, BB-195, R.4. A moderately scarce variety among 1800 dollars, there are several diagnostics that identify this variant. There is a prominent die crack through the top of the O in OF, a die dot between the R and T of LIBERTY, and several die flaws around TES. However, of much greater importance is the double striking on this coin. This is a true rarity among early dollars and the few pieces that are known are quickly absorbed by collectors when they become available.
    On this coin a wide arc of doubling is seen from 11 to 7 o'clock on the obverse and from 10 to 6 o'clock on the reverse. There is nothing subtle about the doubling on this coin. The stars on the right side of the obverse are all present to a greater or lesser degree on the first strike, and even the tops of TY are evident. On the reverse, OF AMERIC is almost completely visible with the tops of ES and the final A in AMERICA faintly visible. Closer examination shows that all the devices are doubled--of special note is the first date below the prominent date, the eagle's tailfeathers, and UNITED in the left reverse field. The surfaces are brilliant and the coin is generally well struck, except for the highpoint of Liberty's hair on the obverse. Lightly abraded with no individually distracting or significant marks on either side. A very rare and important double struck Bust dollar and of great importance to the collector of early dollars as well as error collectors.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 24X9, PCGS# 6887)
