1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Heraldic Eagle. B-8a, BB-125. Rarity-2. BB Die State III. Pointed 9, 4 Berries. VF-25 (NGC). The color is natural silver-steel with deeper gray fields and lighter silver on the devices. A late die state with advanced die clashing on both sides and the reverse die shows numerous cracks. There are a couple of minor planchet flaws on the right side of the obverse and reverse not affecting the lettering or devices beyond the dentils. Scarce in this advanced die state and a coin that should generate collector interest for the many cracks and smooth surfaces.
