Lot Description
1795 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-15, BB-52. Rarity-2. Bowers Die State IV. Centered Bust. EF-45 (PCGS). This first year Draped Bust dollar would make a lovely addition to a circulated type set. It is a lightly and evenly worn piece that retains ample sharpness of detail from a well centered and otherwise well executed strike. Fairly vibrant in appearance, and also quite lustrous for the grade, a satin to semi reflective finish shines forth powerfully as the surfaces dip into a light. Untoned apart from blushes of pretty rose-gray and pinkish-apricot iridescence scattered about the peripheries.<br /> <br /> <strong>Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers<br /> </strong>A nice example of the second of two Draped Bust die varieties this year, together representing the first appearance of this motif on American circulating coinage.
