Ron Guth: The 1798 B-32, BB-91 Silver Dollar is a rare variety.  Most examples are well-circulated.  On average, a B-32, BB-91 will appear on the market about once every two years.  Included among those are a couple of Very Fine examples.  The finest example is believed to be the PCGS MS61 example from the Cardinal and Dr. Hesselgesser collections.
