Lot Description
Lustrous deep lilac gray with a bold array of neon blue on both sides. The surfaces are immaculate in-hand, and magnified scrutiny does little to&nbsp;convince the viewer otherwise. Some lightness of strike is seen at the obverse center and throughout much of the reverse eagle as well, typical for the type and variety; the dentils and peripheral elements are all crisply represented. Gem Draped Bust dollars are truly few and far between--check the population reports and see if you don't agree. To see such a lovely early dollar as this is a treat as well as an experience one just doesn't encounter every day. Whether you specialize in early dollars, are currently assembling a world-class type collection, working on a top-notch Registry Set, or simply appreciate rare and beautiful coins, this&nbsp;1797 silver dollar will be a feather in your collection's cap.&nbsp;An altogether pleasing Gem example of a popular variety.<br /> <br /> <strong>Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers<br /> <br /> </strong>Here indeed is a super rarity. In my own experience I have had more 1804 silver dollars and 1913 Liberty Head nickels than I have had of truly high-grade 1797 silver dollars across the three different varieties.&nbsp;
