1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Small Eagle. B-2, BB-81. Rarity-3. BB Die State II. 15 Stars. VF-35 (PCGS). Scarce as a type and variety coin and a major <em>Guide Book </em>issue as this is the only 1798 silver dollar with 15 obverse stars and one of just two die pairings that include the Small Eagle reverse style. Handsome gunmetal-blue toning which flashes with russet accents around the devices. The strike is reasonably sharp and the surfaces are nicer than average. Identifiable by a minor natural edge flaw on the right side of the reverse, no affecting any devices.
