1796 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-66, B-1. Rarity-4. Bowers Die State II. Small Date, Small Letters. EF-40 (PCGS). Secure Holder. Silver-copper patina blankets both sides with splashes of rose-gray overtoning more widely scattered over the reverse. This piece is boldly defined at the lower reaches of EF, there being only light wear that is largely confined to the central highpoints. We see no abrasions of note, and the eye appeal is quite strong for a lightly circulated Silver Dollar of this type. Conditionally scarce for a die marriage that is typically offered no finer than VF.
