1802 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-6, BB-241. Rarity-1. BB Die State III. Narrow Date. AU-53 (NGC). OH. An absolutely lovely representative example of the date and grade combination. Light steel gray surfaces are essentially blemish-free to the unaided eye, and low magnification does little to dispel the initial impression. The design details are sharply represented with just a touch of wear on the highest points. Trace amounts of luster enliven the protected areas, with a hint here and there of gold and neon blue iridescence. Choice for the grade, and a real beauty that will do justice to any early dollar cabinet or advanced U.S. type collection.
