1802 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-242, B-5. Rarity-5. Wide Date. EF-45 (PCGS). This silver-lilac example also reveals a partial halo of warmer copper-gray patina around much of the obverse border. Still partially lustrous at the Choice EF grade level, with no distracting abrasions and suitably bold detail to the major devices. The reverse is a bit off center in strike and drawn toward the lower border.
