1799 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-23, BB-159. Rarity-4. BB Die State II. Stars 8x5. AU-55 (PCGS). One of the tougher die marriages to find in high grade from this series as most of those known are in lower grades. This near mint example shows handsome teal-gold toning with brighter silver flashes in the protected areas. A fairly early die state for this issue with minimal die cracks or clashing. The surfaces are satin smooth and reveal little circulation evidence and no mishandling. This star arrangement is unique on this single obverse die for the silver dollar series.
