1797 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-73, B-1. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State I. Stars 9x7, Large Letters. EF-40 (PCGS). A handsome piece with richly original toning, both sides are awash in charcoal-rose patina. We note uncommonly smooth surfaces for an early Dollar that acquired 20 points of wear, that wear being light, even and not all that distracting to the detail. Nicely centered in strike, and sure to fetch a solid bid at auction.
