Lot Description
1801 $1 XF45 PCGS. B-1, BB-211, R.3. Only four 1801 silver dollar varieties are known (five if the proof novodel is counted). Three of the four varieties are rated R.3, the fourth is R.4. As a date, 1801 is scarce in higher grades, and Mint State pieces are virtually unknown. This Choice XF specimen is an ideal date or type coin. Both sides have light gray surfaces with hints of lilac, gold, and iridescent toning.
