Product Description


This is the finest known example of the 1798 Pointed 9, 5 Lines (in the Shield) Type and is graded PCGS AU55. There are no Mint State examples none, nor are any examples graded higher. This coin is missing from most high grade Red Book and PCGS Registry Sets. This example is from the World's Greatest Collection (F.C.C. Boyd) which was sold in 1945 and is also ex. Milferd Bolender and the Plate Coin in the Bolender early dollar book, and is from my personal reference collection of the "Dollars of 1798."
