Description

1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Large Eagle. B-6, BB-96. Rarity-3. Bowers Die State IV-V (intermediate die state). Knob 9, 10 Arrows. EF-40 (PCGS).

The PCGS insert attributes this coin as an example of the "5 Stripes" Guide Book variety, although Knob 9, 10 Arrows is the more appropriate variety for the B-6 die marriage. Knobbed 9, point of 1 touches curl, the 8 is high and nearly touches bust, line star pattern on reverse, large letters, 5 lines in each shield element. Deep blue-gray and golden toning embraces this well defined Bust dollar. A few crisscrossing adjustment marks culminate at the center of the reverse, and some post-striking abrasions are seen in the obverse fields. Traces of luster still glimmer from the legends, plumage, and hair.

PCGS#: 6876
