    1799 7x6 Stars Dollar, AU53
    Sharp B-5a, BB-157 Example

    1799 $1 7x6 Stars, B-5a, BB-157, R.2, AU53 NGC. Bowers Die State II. While the BB-157 is almost always seen with numerous reverse die cracks, this die state has only one such crack. It is a prominent one, stretching from the dentils just right of the eagle's tailfeathers through the tailfeathers, UNITED, the eagle's wingtip, and STATES. The fields are smooth and the devices are sharp, confirming an early die state for the variety. Each side displays light-gold toning and a fair amount of satiny luster. The only mentionable abrasions are a few tiny pinscratches in the reverse field just between the left (facing) shield corner and the ribbon. On the obverse, the remnant of a grease streak (Mint made) is evident from the LI in LIBERTY to star 9.
