1799 B-13, BB-151 Rarity 5. PCGS graded EF-45. CAC Approved. Irregular Date. Well detailed for this more difficult 1799 variety, with soft gray highlights that add considerably to the appeal of this nearly mark-free specimen. We note a deeper shaded toning area in a band across the reverse; also, a short hairline in the field between I of UNITED and the wing. The reverse is positioned ever so slightly out of alignment to the left. On the obverse, a few tiny marks on Liberty's neck at center and a shallow depression on the cheekbone. Similar centering as found on the reverse (the dies must have been slightly misaligned in the press). There is a small scratch by the first star which identifies this side. Choice rims; ideal color for its grade and time-period, and the right "look" to entice buyers then, now, and far in the future. We suggest a bid. Pop 1; none finer at PCGS for the variety (PCGS # 40044) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,500.
Ex: Miller/Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $6,900
