1801 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-2, BB-212. Rarity-3. BB Die State II. AU-50 (PCGS). OGH. Here is a tough date to find in high grades, especially this well preserved and attractive with its golden-gray and gunmetal toning. Bold definition is noted on Liberty's curls and the reverse is sharp too, which is unusual for this variety as most have weaker strikes on the reverse stars and clouds. Examination with a loupe will find a few minor scuffs and scratches, but these are offset by the high grade and residual mint flash.
