Trivia Question (Early Dollars)

7 posts in this topic

For you Early Dollar aficionados -- hello, anyone out there? -- I want to see how well you know the varieties beyond the standard Red Book ones.


Identify, by the BB or Bol numbers, the following nicknamed varieties:


1. Bar

2. Apostrophe

3. Comet


Whoever gets all three gets my standard prize...

Well, perhaps we can answer this collectively! Here are two answers, let's see if someone can supply the final one:


Bar = 1795 B5


Apostrophe S = 1799 B9


Comet = 1800 B13, also B18a. (Bolender mistook B13 and B18 as separate die marriages, when they're simply different rev die states.)
