Lot Description
1803 $1 Large 3 AU53 NGC. B-6, BB-255, R.2. Swirls of honey and plum-gray color grace the pastel-toned reverse, while the gently variegated obverse offers gunmetal-blue and chestnut tints. Luster is substantial, and dominates the outlines and crevices of the design. Slight friction on the portrait highpoints is appropriate for the grade. No marks are remotely worthy of mention. A beautiful example of the Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle type. Census: 4 in 53, 4 finer (1/06).
