Mostly untoned. Pop 4; 16 finer</B> for the variety at NGC. Modest amounts of wear on the tops of the curls and along the drapery, the eagle on this variety is definitely better struck than on some of these very scarce small eagle dollars of 1795-98. A handsome coin all around, with smooth surfaces plus defect-free rims. Just the thing for the advanced collector. <BR><BR>(There is only one report of a 1796 BB-61 dollar certified in Mint condition by NGC and none for PCGS. Despite this, Dave Bowers located enough offerings of 1796 BB-61 dollars described as Mint State over the years that in his 1993 Encyclopedia he listed the Condition Census as "63-60 (multiples)" and was able to list eight different specimens that had been described as Mint State over the years.). <BR>Estimated Value $7,000 - 7,500.
