1797 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-3, BB-71, Bowers Die State III. Rarity-2. Stars 10X6. EF-45 (PCGS). Medium steel gray with some deeper toning in the recessed areas. The surfaces, though circulated, are pristine in-hand; low magnification reveals no blemishes worthy of reviewing here. Bust dollars have come into their own in recent times, bolstered by the strong numismatic climate and the move into early American issues by more mainstream collectors--Bust dollars are no longer the playground of the specialist. If you mean to have a suitable Bust dollar for an advanced type set or to add to a growing collection, you will do well to cast your bid in the direction of this lot.
