Description

1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Large Eagle. BB-105. B-23. Rarity-3. Pointed 9, Wide Date. MS-62 (PCGS). CAC.

Despite its status as a plentiful die marriage in the Bust Dollar series, the 1798 BB-105 is still a conditionally rare coin even at the lowest reaches of Mint State. High in the Condition Census, this is a beautiful BU example that is knocking on the door of a Choice grade. The surfaces are minimally abraded, and none of the scattered marks are worthy of even a passing comment. Both sides have a soft, satiny sheen that shimmers beneath even silver-gray (obverse) and tannish-gray (reverse) patina. The peripheries are even more vivid, and they reveal lovely orange and cobalt-blue highlights that further enhance already memorable eye appeal. Bold-to-sharp in strike, we can easily see this coin serving as a highlight in a specialized early Dollar collection.
