Lot Description
1803 $1 Large 3 AU55 PCGS. B-6, BB-255, R.1. This is the most commonly seen variety of the year with more pieces known today of the B-6 than all the other varieties combined, which is to say, this is the perfect coin for a date set of early dollars. This is an especially pleasing coin that retains much of the original mint luster with gray-golden toning spread over each side. Sharply struck, the only area of softness (and this may actually be friction not strike) is on the eagle's breast feathers just above the shield and on the tailfeathers. Ex: Heritage (1/2002), lot 7247; 2005 FUN Auction (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 8219.
