1802 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-6, BB-241. Rarity-1. BB Die State III. Narrow Date. AU-50 (PCGS). This is one of the most plentiful of the die varieties in the entire Draped Bust dollar series. These tend to come in high grades as they were struck late in the series and most silver dollars did not circulate for many years beyond their limited production. Here is a handsome lilac-gray coin with tinges of blue and russet blended over both sides. Fully struck and free of rim bumps or adjustment marks. This variety is instantly recognizable by the missing right base serif on the T of LIBERTY.
