1797 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-71, B-3. Rarity-2. Bowers Die State III. Stars 10x6. VF-20 (PCGS). OGH. The old-style PCGS insert carries the incorrect coin number for the 1797 Stars 10x6 <em>Guide Book </em>variety. Mostly silver-gray in sheen, this piece does reveal bolder steel-gray highlights around the obverse border. A somewhat glossy texture is noted for accuracy, but suitably bold detail and a lack of individually mentionable abrasions provides a pleasing "look" for a mid-grade early Dollar.
