    Choice XF 1798 Small Eagle Dollar
    13 Stars, B-1, BB-82

    1798 $1 Small Eagle, 13 Stars XF45 NGC. B-1, BB-82, R.3. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. A splendid example of the transitional 1798 Small Eagle silver dollar. Two varieties are known, with either 15 stars or 13 stars. It is believed that the 15 Stars coins were struck first, since earlier years had either 15 or 16 stars. The 13 Stars coins are similar to all remaining 1798 and later dollars. The 15 Stars coins are technically part of the earlier design type, while the 13 Stars coins are the true transitional pieces that have characteristics of both the earlier and later designs.
    This splendid Choice XF piece has deep blue toning on the obverse, with splashes of lilac and gold. The reverse is stone-gray with considerable blue patina. Delicate adjustment marks at the center of the obverse are strictly of mint origin. Census: 25 in 45, 19 finer (3/09).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24X5, PCGS# 6867)

    Weight: 26.96 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
