Description

    One of the Finest Known B-10, BB-190 1800 Dollars

    1800 $1 MS63 PCGS. B-10, BB-190. Die State IV. This MS63 PCGS specimen of the finest examples known for this die variety. It is also an example of the 1800 "Wide Date" type and is thus desired by both type and die variety collectors. This lustrous specimen has attractive medium gray and light gold toning on both sides. A few tiny (and insignificant) surface distractions are noted under magnification.
    After striking this die marriage, the obverse die was mated with the famous "AMERICAI" reverse die, creating the rare 1800 B-11, BB-191 die marriage. Afterward, the reverse die appears to have shattered completely as it was not used to strike any subsequent die marriages.
    Although not mentioned in the die state analysis in the Bowers book, at some point the obverse die clashed with the reverse die. This specimen shows clash marks between Liberty and the rim, through star 13, and into the field in front of Liberty. The reverse die is virtually shattered, and displays myriad die breaks through AMERICA, the wreath, and the eagle's right wing into the star area. This can be seen on the AU58 PCGS specimen also offered in this sale.
    From the Michael Hering Collection. (NGC ID# 24X9, PCGS# 6887)
