Lot 5067

1798 B-14, BB-122 Pointed 9 Close Date Rarity 3. PCGS graded AU-55. Subset of PCGS # 40018. In a new secure plus holder. Condition Census. Previously graded AU58 by NGC. Fine central detail and wonderful color with toned silver gray surfaces, decorated with splashes of pale gold. A bit weakly struck at the stars on the right, sometimes seen on this variety due the planchet resting slightly off from the center, but better than most others. Nicely detailed elsewhere, including eagle's wing feathers and shield. Moreover, there is exceptional overall eye appeal. No marks or scratches to annoy the well-versed collector, either. A high quality example of a common variety, one that is apparently unknown in Mint State in a Secure Plus holder. Rare Early Die State. Notice the clash beginning at the 7th star and L in Liberty. Pop 1; none finer at PCGS for the variety (PCGS # 40039) .
Estimated Value $12,000-UP.
The Dr. Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $18,400
