1799 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-165, B-8a. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State II. AU-53 (PCGS). Secure Holder. The obverse exhibits more vibrant champagne-apricot undertones to dominant silver-gray patina. The reverse, on the other hand, is toned in a blend of lavender-gray and olive-gray shades. Both sides are lightly worn over devices that are boldly struck in all areas save for in and around the centers. A minimally abraded, overall smooth AU with much to recommend it to the collector of high-grade Bust Dollars.
