    Lovely AU

    1797 $1 PCGS AU55 (9x7 Stars, Large Letters) ex: D.L. Hansen


    Splendid silver mint luster gleams over the surfaces of this impressively preserved, choice AU example. Well defined design elements are highlighted by tints of lavender, peach, and gold. The original lot description at Stacks Bowers notes, "A flaw in the planchet obscures much of the T in LIBERTY, though the surfaces are lacking in notable post-Mint blemishes. The dies are heavily fatigued in this state, with dramatic cracks and evidence of clashing visible on each side." The Hansen Collection possess the finest known example for the date, a MS64.

    Next Bid: $22,000.00
    Closes: 3D 1H

    The 1877-CC Trade Dollar had a healthy striking of 534,000 coins, but the date is very scarce and underappreciated due to the number of pieces that were melted shortly thereafter and in China where they were used for trade. Bright and beautifully untoned, PCGS has graded only three examples finer than this choice specimen!
