1798 B-25, BB-123 Pointed 9 Close Date Rarity 4. PCGS graded AU-55. Subset of PCGS # 40018. In a new secure plus holder. Condition Census. Attractive gold with natural gray toning covers smooth, lustrous surfaces. Excellent eye appeal, a bit soft at central shoulder but well defined on the eagle's head, wings, scroll and shield. Early dollars are fascinating to study, particularly so because of the size of the design compared to other early U.S. coins that show such extensive personality traits. This piece, with excellent luster and aesthetic appeal, must be counted first in any list of survivors in excellent condition. Pop 1; none finer at PCGS for the variety (PCGS # 40040) .
Estimated Value $9,000-UP.
The Dr. Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $9,900
