Mostly untoned. Thin top to 3 in date, top side long, and ends near bust, very close. On the left stars 4-5 and 5-6 are closer together than are any of the others. On the right, stars 10-11 and 12-13 are wider apart than are any others. Obverse die used to strike 1803 BB-254 only. About 300 to 550 examples are known of 1803 BB-254, placing it squarely in the scarce class. Most are in worn grades, with VF being typical. Not all 1803 BB-254 dollars were crisply struck; when uneven, the striking tends to show weakness on the lower bust and, correspondingly, above the eagle also affecting portions of OF. Pop 1; 3 finer; 1 in 58; 1 in 61; 1 in 64.</B> <BR>Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.
