Lot Description
1800 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-184, B-12. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State I. EF-40 (PCGS). Secure Holder. Splashes of copper-russet patina are more widespread on the obverse, and they enliven a base of "old-silver" toning on both sides. Nicely centered in strike and suitably bold in detail at the EF grade level, moderate wear is generally even in distribution. The centers are a bit softly impressed, however, but not distractingly so for the type. Wispy abrasions are commensurate with the grade, and most are fairly well concealed by the toning.
