Well struck and attractively toned in antique shades of violet and grey. This lovely piece has the head of Liberty centered between LIBERTY and the date, with diagnostic die break in the hair near the hair ribbon. Sleek "old silver" color on both sides, nice uncleaned fields and devices, with sharp relief predominant. This is the first of the short-lived draped bust, small eagle pieces, a Type that was in use at the mint only in 1795-98. Both 1795 and 1798 are transition years when two major Types were issued. A lovely problem-free coin Pop 43; 82 finer.(PCGS # 6858) </B>. <BR>Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.
