Lot Description
1797 $1 9x7 Stars, Large Letters AU50 NGC. B-1, BB-73, R.3. Nine stars left and seven right; Lowest left berry on inside of wreath. Cream-gray and golden colors combine across the obverse and reverse in a very subtle fashion. The eagle's breast and Liberty's cheek and drapery exhibit moderate rub appropriate for the grade, although substantial satiny luster bathes the wreath, Liberty's hair, and the eagle's wings. Some minor graffiti shows in the right obverse field near Liberty's neck and face, but surprisingly unabraded for a large silver coin from the early years of the Mint. This splendid Draped Bust Dollar would be an impressive addition to an advanced type set or a specialized Guide Book variety collection.
