1796 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-4, BB-61. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State II. Small Date, Large Letters. VF-30 (PCGS). Natural gunmetal-gray fields offset the lighter silver devices. Smooth wear on Liberty's curls and the eagle's breast feathers from circulation. There are several shallow scratches on Liberty's profile and the eagle, seen with a strong loupe, but these blend into the devices well. Always in demand for the short lived type with the Draped Bust obverse and Small Eagle reverse.
