1799 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-166, B-9. Rarity-2. Bowers Die State V. AU-50 (NGC). Pretty cobalt-blue peripheral highlights further enliven rich apricot-gray (obverse) and reddish-gray (reverse) toning. Well balanced in strike with overall bold detail, this minimally circulated survivor also reveals glints of original luster as the surfaces dip into a light. Seemingly earmarked for inclusion in a high-grade type set.
