Lot Description
1797 $1 9x7 Stars, Large Letters Fine 15 NGC. B-1, BB-73, R.3. The Draped Bust dollars of 1797 are more available than the tiny mintage of 7,776 pieces would suggest, but only three die varieties are known for the date, which seems to confirm a limited production. The present coin retains more detail on the central devices than expected, and the surfaces are smooth except for a few reverse streaks in the planchet, near the bottom. The 9x7 obverse star arrangement, with the large letters in the reverse legend, identifies the BB-73 variety. From The Dustinn (Dusty) Lee Gibson Collection.
