Already impressive as a Mint State example of a 1797 Silver Dollar, this piece is even more exceptional because of the clear, triple striking evident on both sides. Everything -- denticles, leaves, feathers, letters, hair, stars -- shows triple details, each strike shifted just slightly from the preceding. Completely original, with deep lilac centers deepening to olive-purple near the peripheries. A stunning coin that is sure to excite the participants in the current, red-hot market for errors. The triple striking has created a depth of details rarely seen on any early U.S.silver dollar. <BR>Estimated Value $25,000 - 30,000.
