The first time that an overdate is found on a Bust Dollar is in 1799 -- the single overdate obverse is combined with three different reverse, this being the last which has the famous "15-star" reverse. There are two extra stars almost buried in the clouds, with just the points showing. The one at extreme left is the most easily spotted. This reverse carried over to B-4 (in a marriage with a perfect-date obverse). Always in demand; was Rarity-5 but revised to Rarity-3 for the fifth revised edition of Bolender (1988)."
