1798 S-169 R3 Small 8, Style II Hair VG10+. Double Struck over Obverse Brockage. Nice glossy medium brown and chocolate. The surfaces are smooth and relatively free of marks. A thin vertical nick on the shoulder and a small pinprick in the field close to the upper ribbon tip are the best identifying marks. Very close to F12. Double struck over an obverse brockage. The initial strike was an obverse brockage impressed slightly off center to K-6. The second strike was properly centered with the reverse struck over the incuse brockage impression. This second strike was rotated 20 degrees CCW relative to the first. Much of the undertype shows on both sides, including three complete dates, two normal on the obverse and one incuse on the reverse at STAT (from the brockage). A great multiple error. DWH #2497.
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
Ex C. Douglas Smith-Dr. Robert A. Schuman, McCawley & Grellman Auctions/Superior 9/5/04:382.

Realized $6,325
