    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.

    PCGS #40027. One of the most important trademarks of this rare variety is the heavy die crack that spans the lower left obverse from the tops of the 179 to the left rim just below the first star. Well-defined surfaces are free of any individually distracting marks of this piece's brief time in circulation. gunmetal-blue, gold and green iridescence spanning the obverse and reverse. Lovely gun-metal surfaces give way to subtle gold, green, and pale pink iridescence when examined under a light source.
