1795 B.4 (R-3). Two Leaves Below Each Wing. This obverse die is easily recognized by the position...
This obverse die is easily recognized by the position of the fifteenth star relative to the truncation of Liberty's bust.

A strong Very Fine or better. However, examination will find faint evidence of a skillful repair below the ribbon ends where a shadowy ''W'' can be seen with a strong magnifier, as well as trace evidence of smoothing in that area.

Only 10 arrows in the eagle's talon on the reverse. Brilliant Uncirculated and a highly enticing example. The fields and devices offer a full measure of icy mint frost beneath a pale veil of golden and lilac-gray toning. The legends, denticulation, and wing feathers are all quite sharp, and there is only a limited degree of striking weakness near the centers on either side. The quality of the specimen...  more

Choice Very Fine, nearly Extremely Fine. For this die pairing, this in an early die state which shows trace evidence of the bisecting obverse die crack which extends up through the '1' in the date to the 'E' of LIBERTY.

Detail of Extremely Fine, but smoothing is evident in the obverse fields. A well struck coin otherwise, with sharp stars and devices. The reverse is a late die state with the die cracks detailed under Bolender's B.18, which are only seen on the latest die states of B.22. Bolender was mistaken when he reported these die cracks under the B.18 die pairing, which uses the same reverse die....  more

1798 B.23a. Pointed 9, Wide Date. (R-3) Extremely Fine. Lilac gray surfaces are slightly paler at...

2834 1798 B.24. Bold Crack to Star 12, 4 Weak Reverse Stars EF $1,500.00
1798 B.24. Bold Crack to Star 12, 4 Weak Reverse Stars. Extremely Fine. Such wear as is present must...

1799/8 B.3 (R-3). Fifteen Star Reverse. About Uncirculated or nearly so, but there are signs of an...
About Uncirculated or nearly so, but there are signs of an ancient cleaning which has removed most of the lustre and left faint hairlines. Retoned with attractive light golden-gray over both sides, and sharply struck throughout. Both dies were worn, clashed, rusted and cracked when this one was struck, as often seen for this long-lasting die pair. There are not rim marks or adjustment marks, and the...  more

Choice About Uncirculated. This coin is just the right color, a soft silver-gray mixed with orange-gold with ample lustre in the fields and within Liberty's curls. The strike is sharp enough to bring out all the desired definition on the stars and curls on the obverse, matching on the reverse where the clouds, stars and eagle all show the desired definition.

1799 B.8a (R-3). Fine. Here is a pale steel gray example with a touch of russet toning at the right...
Fine. Here is a pale steel gray example with a touch of russet toning at the right obverse rim. A few marks at the central obverse and a couple of rim marks are no big deal considering the maltreatment most early U.S coins have endured. A decent, collector grade coin.

1799 B.10a (R-3). Brilliant Uncirculated. The surfaces are exceptional for an early Dollar with minimal...
The surfaces are exceptional for an early Dollar with minimal handling nicks or marks. A strong magnifier finds trace evidence of nicks, a couple before Liberty's face, others near her bust. There are clash marks in the upper left obverse field from the reverse arrows and above Liberty's head from the eagle's tail. Liberty's curls are boldly impressed, and show definition seldom seen...  more

- with claims to Choice. Dark gray near the rims, with lighter gray to the centers. The strike is quite sharp on the very late die state coin, with desirable separation on Liberty's curls, and well formed stars surrounding.

About Uncirculated. An advanced die crack from the edge to the right side of 'D' continues to the fourth feather of the left wing, at first glance the olive branch appears to lack berries thanks to regrinding of the die. A splendid strike and detail are highlighted by pearl gray and diffuse rose toning of great delicacy. Exquisite centering is emphasized by especially high and precise...  more
