2829 1798 B.6 (R-3). Knob 9 in the date BU $18,000.00
1798 B.6 (R-3). Knob 9 in the date.  Only 10 arrows in the eagle's talon on the reverse. Brilliant...
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.

1798 B.22 (R-3). Detail of Extremely Fine, but smoothing is evident in the obverse fields. A well...
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...

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. No rim bumps or adjustment...  more

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.
2840 1799 B.9 AU $4,000.00
1799 B.9. A strong, well struck About Uncirculated, with claims to a higher grade. Deeply toned with...

1799 B.10a (R-3). Brilliant Uncirculated. The surfaces are exceptional for an early Dollar with minimal...

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.

1799 B.12. Normal Date, No Berries. Brilliant Uncirculated, with claims to Choice. Here is a beautiful...

2848 1799 B.12b (R-3) CH AU $6,000.00
1799 B.12b (R-3). Choice About Uncirculated and approaching a full Mint State designation. There is...
Choice About Uncirculated and approaching a full Mint State designation. There is just the slightest hint of friction at the most vulnerable locations on either side, otherwise the surfaces are unencumbered in even the slightest way.

1800 B.4 (R-4). Extremely Fine. Medium gray throughout and pleasing for the grade. There are some...
