1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Large Eagle. BB-108, B-13. Rarity-3. Pointed 9, 10 Arrows. AU-53 (NGC). All 1798 Silver Dollars are scarce and this is especially true when found in high grades. Toned with deep gunmetal-gray on the obverse with tinges of rose and blue intermixed while the reverse is a bit mottled with areas of lighter gray too. The strike sharp for a 1798 Dollar, as these often are found with soft striking areas in the upper reverse stars, but here all are bold. Faint lines and handling marks from circulation but no adjustment marks or rim bumps distract the eye.
