1799 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-163, B-10. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State IV. VF-25 (PCGS). This is the rare terminal die state of the 1799 B-10 Dollar with numerous additional cracks (as struck) on the reverse, the most prominent of which bisects the letter O in OF from the border. A warmly patinated piece, both sides exhibit olive-gray patina that deepens in color a bit at the borders. With scattered abrasions from circulation, none of which are really worthy of individual attention.
