Lot Description
1798 $1 Small Eagle, 13 Stars VF35 PCGS. B-1, BB-82, R.3. The 1798 Draped Bust dollars were produced with two reverse designs, the older Small Eagle reverse and the newer Heraldic Eagle motif. Two die varieties are known that employ the Small Eagle reverse, with the present coin representing the BB-82 variety, distinguished by the 13 stars on the obverse. This specimen shows light-to-moderate wear on the devices, and retains some traces of mint luster. The light gray toning is accented by hints of crimson and blue. Population: 25 in 35, 61 finer (11/10).
