Description

1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Heraldic Eagle. B-15a, BB-112. Rarity-3. BB Die State III. Pointed 9, Wide Date. AU-53 (PCGS).

This is a scarce die variety for the year and seldom offered in grades of AU and above. The strike is decent, but both dies have been lapped so their depth simply is not there and the devices are somewhat shallow, mostly seen around the rims. Otherwise, Liberty's hair is bold and displays strong definition and full curl separation. The reverse is sharply struck too, as the eagle retains all his wing feathers and the complete star collection below the clouds. No adjustment marks or distracting nicks are present.

PCGS#: 6873
