1797 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-3, BB-71. Rarity-2. BB Die State III. Stars 10x6. Fine-12 (PCGS). Toned throughout with golden-gray hues that are slightly deeper in the fields and lighter on the devices. Average surface quality with tiny circulation marks from handling that are best seen when closely examined. Scarce as a date and type, and the Draped Bust, Small Eagle design is one of the most elegant of these early Federal coins issued.
