1796 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-4, BB-61. Rarity-3. BB Die State I. Small Date, Large Letters. AU-53 (PCGS). Bright silver with a dash of pale blue iridescence mixed with gold, and slightly reflective. A tough coin to find in such a high grade as most of those known today show far more circulation evidence. Examine the eagle's breast feathers and all of the curl definition on Liberty -- rarely seen this well defined and preserved. The surfaces are average with moderate light marks from handling and commerce. For identification there is a thin line down through the L of LIBERTY to the knot in the hair. No adjustment marks or rim bruises are present.
