Lot Description
1799 $1 AU53 NGC. 7x6 Stars, B-17, BB-164, R.2. The 1799 Draped Bust dollars are not difficult to locate as a date, and the BB-164 variety is an available die marriage, but most examples seen are in grades below XF. AU coins are quite elusive. The present coin is a darkly toned specimen with much original detail remaining on all design elements. Slight wear shows on the eagle's head and wing feathers, and on Liberty's profile. Traces of mint luster can be detected under the toning when the coin is tilted in the light.
