Lot 5042

1798 B-23, BB-105 Pointed 9 Wide Date Rarity 3. PCGS graded AU-58 PQ. CAC Approved. Subset of PCGS # 40018. An unbelievably lustrous coin with faint echoes of the original cartwheels rising and falling beneath rich toning. The reverse and obverse centers play host to a unusually crisp detail and originality always appreciated by the stronger buyers. In short, a lovely coin, one might almost say an extravagant coin, and one that certainly meets the qualifications for the About Uncirculated 58 grade.

1798 BB-105 shares honors with BB-125 as one of the two most available varieties of the year and, indeed, one of the more often seen early dollars of any date. An estimated 201 to 500 are believed to exist. Most are in lower grades. In AU and Mint State grades it is rare, however. In a new secure plus holder. Condition Census #1. Pop 1; none finer at PCGS for the variety. The Finest Known BB-105 (PCGS # 40022) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
The Dr. Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $18,400
