Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center AU50 NGC. B-14, BB-51, R.2. The misplaced device punch suggests that B-14 was struck before B-15 (since practice makes perfect), which would mean that B-14 was the first Draped Bust marriage of any denomination. Rich navy-blue, golden-brown, and olive-green toning blankets this lightly abraded Draped Bust silver dollar. Wear on Liberty's cheek and shoulder is moderate, and the hair, wreath, and borders shimmer with luster. A few minor adjustment marks are as made and relegated to the reverse border near 7 o'clock.
