1798 B-11, BB-111 Pointed 9 Close Date Rarity 3. PCGS graded EF-45 PQ. CAC Approved. Subset of PCGS # 40018. In a new secure plus holder. Condition Census. EDS. A thing of beauty and one, and a coin just about every collector of Early Silver Dollars will want to enter a bid on! The clean, natural surfaces are smooth-textured. Some luster still looks out from around the main devices, well-protected by the strong relief portions of the design from wear in circulation. As to whether "wear and tear" is apparent, this is decidedly avoided on the present specimen: surfaces are genuinely sleek and attractive. Well struck for the date and variety, with minor weakness in the hair from the die break that occurs there, and easily matching or surpassing others in this condition.

Only a shallow linear break present, extending from the center of Liberty's head to her face and almost imperceptibly beyond. Clearly, this die would have had plenty of life left in it before it shattered into two separate pieces (as must have happened by the time die progression VIII was achieved). Pop 2; none finer at PCGS for the variety (PCGS # 40028) .
Estimated Value $9,000-UP.
The Dr. Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $8,338
