1799 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-12a, BB-160. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State III. AU-58 (NGC). A well made coin that shows bold definition on Liberty's curls with virtually full separation on all but the lightly worn strands, the stars with hints of luster surrounding while the reverse has deeper gunmetal toning that is even in color over field and device. Shallow die cracks through the date and into the field. A couple of light scratches are present on the surfaces and a couple of shallow nicks on Liberty's chest. Free of adjustment marks or rim problems, and a delight to study for the finely executed dies used to strike this piece.
