1801 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. BB-212, B-2. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State II. AU-50 (NGC). Warm, even, golden-gray patina blankets both sides, the only variance to the color coming in the form of delicate orange-russet tinting along the lower-reverse border. Lightly worn with a general boldness to the detail, flickers of original luster are also present to uphold the AU designation. A few wispy abrasions are scattered about, although none are all that distracting to the coin's outward appearance. Well balanced for the grade, and sure to be of interest to the high-grade circulated type collector.
