1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Large Eagle. BB-113, B-27. Rarity-2. Bowers Die State II. Pointed 9, Close Date. AU-50 (PCGS). This minimally circulated type candidate offers bold-to-sharp devices and freedom from all but a few outwardly distracting abrasions. Mostly silver-gray in tone, we do note mottled overtones of light olive-russet patina that on the reverse at least is confined to the periphery. A trace of light glossiness to the texture is noted solely for accuracy.
