1797 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-73, B-1c. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State V. Stars 9x7, Large Letters. VF-30 (PCGS). Even lavender-gray patina is a bit warmer on the obverse. Well balanced at the middle of the numismatic grading scale, both sides are more-or-less boldly defined with relatively light wear to report. There are no outwardly distracting abrasions, and the scarcity of the Small Eagle Dollar is sure to result in keen interest in this 1797 B-1c among circulated type collectors.
