PCGS#: 40005

Owner's Comments

B-2,BB-72.9x7 Stars with small lettered reverse. This is the rarest variety of 1797's. Quite rare in AU in fact this must be high in the CC. The coin is always a weak strike especially the reverse. This coin is exceptional for this variety and unlike most has LUSTER and pizazz. I bought this from a Bowers and Merena Auction Aug. 2008! I was fortunate that at the auction no one picked it up and I bought it after the sale. I am pleased with the beautiful golden toning. R4. Est. Pop.150-250 coins. CC#2-3
