1800 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-190, B-10. Rarity-2 Bowers Die State III. Very Wide Date, Low 8. AU-50 (NGC). Smoky-gray patina to most areas, the right reverse splashed with bolder lavender-charcoal color. Both sides retain overall sharp definition from a well-executed strike, their surfaces free of outwardly distracting abrasions. As one of the more plentiful die marriages of this issue, the 1800 B-10 is a perennial favorite among both date and type collectors.
