Lot 5045

1798 B-13, BB-108 Pointed 9, 10 Arrows Rarity 3. PCGS graded AU-55 PQ. Subset of PCGS # 40018. In a new secure plus holder. Condition Census. A high degree of luster within the devices distinguishes the natural silver gray surfaces from others of the date which are less pulsating even though in technically similar About Uncirculated grade. Collectors familiar with the series will recognize this difference at once. Struck with mathematical precision by the dies. The sometimes annoying soft-edged devices and lettering throughout the centers that are typical on Draped Bust Dollars are nowhere to be seen. Only a small percentage of this year's production is found with enough convincing detail to be called "bold" and this is one such coin! Pop 3; none finer at PCGS for the variety (PCGS # 40025) .
Estimated Value $10,000-UP.
The Dr. Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $10,063
