1800 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-196, B-17. Rarity-4. 12 Arrows. AU-50 (PCGS). Attractive gunmetal-gray toning on the obverse and reverse that is particularly smooth and without the variation that is often found on Liberty's cheek from the wear patterns. Scrutiny of Liberty's curls finds scarcely any wear as the uppermost strands retain their separation. Later die state with multiple fine cracks present on the obverse and a few on the reverse. Boldly clashed dies as nearly always seen with the eagle's wing edge impressed in the die just above Liberty's chest, as is her bust in the star field above the wing.
