Nice strike with even toning. A coin which has the distinction of a very bold strike, choice rims, splendid color, and just as splendid "eye-appeal"; the latter is what it is all about when collecting the classic Early silver dollars of America. The toning exhibits nice shades of gold and brown on a base of medium neutral gray, the type of "old silver" color on both sides collectors cherish. A desirable specimen, to say the least, and one with a lot going for it.<BR><BR>With an estimated population of 1,500 to 2,750 specimens, 1802 BB-241 is more frequently offered than all other varieties of 1802 combined. Indeed, it is the most affordable variety of the 1798-1803 Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle style which makes this handsome offering a first stop for anyone considering the purchase of a bust silver dollar. Pop 18; 36 finer.(PCGS # 6895) </B>. <BR>Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.
