Description:

1797 Draped Bust Dollar, B-3, BB-71, AU53
Prized Low-Mintage Date
1797 $1 10x6 Stars, Large Letters AU53 PCGS. B-3, BB-71, R.2. The low mintage 1797 Draped Bust, Small Eagle dollar has been prized by collectors since the hobby first gained popularity in this country. The three die varieties of the date were recognized in the Haseltine Type Table in 1881, but catalogers began to distinguish between the major varieties at a much earlier date. An example of the B-3 variety was featured in lot 1475 of the Sixth Semi-Annual Sale (Woodward, 10/1864), "1797 Six stars facing, very fine indeed, and scarce." One can only wonder if Woodward's terse description represents a much earlier appearance of the desirable coin offered here.
The present coin is lightly toned in shades of lavender and gray, with a few darker spots of russet on both sides. Nearly all original detail remains on this attractive specimen, but the strike is characteristically weak on the central devices. A few shallow adjustment marks are evident on the bust. Population: 8 in 53, 17 finer (3/10).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 24X4, PCGS# 6865)
