Lot Description
1803 $1 Small 3 AU55 PCGS. B-5, BB-252, R.3. From a reported mintage of 85,634 pieces, the 1803 Draped Bust dollar is the last collectible date of the series. Six die varieties are known for the date, including the BB-252 variety, recognized by the high, thin topped 3 in the date. The BB-252 is rare in Mint State, and perhaps only 10-20 specimens are extant in AU grades. The present coin is a pleasing Choice AU piece, with sharply detailed centers and just a touch of softness on the left obverse stars. The surfaces display attractive silver-gray patina, with highlights of gold. The surfaces exhibit remarkably few abrasions for a coin from this era. Population: 13 in 55, 16 finer (1/14).
