1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Heraldic Eagle. B-27, BB-113. Rarity-2. BB Die State II. Pointed 9, Close Date. AU-50 (PCGS). OGH.
Impressive quality for the date or variety specialist is found on this silver dollar which exhibits virtually full hair separation as well as just a touch of wear on the highest device points on the reverse. Surface quality is high too, with bright silver fields and devices that show no deep or detracting marks. Although a plentiful die pairing, the vast majority are in far lower grades and have considerably less eye appeal than seen here. Middle die state for this marriage, with the obverse showing the lumps in the field before Liberty's chin, these grow larger during the next six die pairings all with this obverse die and new reverse dies. A handsome coin for the collector who appreciates quality and high grade.
