    1800 Dollar, B-10, BB-190, MS62
    Unabraded, Unusual Late Die State

    1800 $1 Wide Date, Low 8 MS62 PCGS. B-10, BB-190, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State VII (+/-). This is another relatively available die pairing for the year, although this example is certainly far finer than usually seen. The date is quite widely spaced, with the two 0s far apart and the 8 too low. As with some early gold pieces we have studied against the Bass-Dannreuther book, the coins do not always fit the rules. This piece shows the die cracks listed for States VI and VII in the Bowers-Borckardt reference, including a rather heavy branching crack through the C in AMERICA and two light, near-parallel cracks connecting ME, yet there is no trace of any crack through the U(NITED), listed for Die State V. The surfaces are remarkably pristine and unabraded on this well-struck piece, with only a few tiny dotlike planchet indents appearing on the neck under a loupe. Some light die clashing appears in the right (facing) obverse field. Beautiful olive color cedes to aqua at the reverse rims. No planchet adjustment marks are visible. For the date, Population: 7 in 62, 12 finer (3/12).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 24X9, PCGS# 6888)
