1799 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-9, BB-166. Rarity-1. Bowers Die State V. EF-40 (NGC). Pleasing graphite-gray toning in the fields offsets the lighter silver devices on both the obverse and reverse. The strike is average with slight softness on the reverse stars but bold elsewhere. Middle die state with obverse cracks that span the fields, one grazing Liberty's chin as it arcs to the rim above. No adjustment marks or physical detractions mar the surfaces.
