1803 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-5, BB-252. Rarity-2. Small 3. MS-62 (PCGS). Strong underlying luster supports deep crimson central highlights with rich gold, electric blue and deep sea green halos reaching concentrically outward. Nicely struck and devoid of marks of consequence though we note vertical planchet adjustment marks, as struck, in Miss Liberty's hair. A pleasing coin that is definitely worthy of the assigned grade, especially given the climate of "MS-62" coins in today's third-party grading circles. The present coin holds up well to close scrutiny and is, for all intents and purposes, what a MS-62 coin should be. A nice opportunity for an advanced early dollar collector or for a well-rounded collector who simply appreciates beautiful coins with quality surfaces.
