Description:
1797 Draped Bust Dollar, MS62
10x6 Stars, B-3, BB-71
Ex: Cardinal Collection
1797 $1 10x6 Stars, Large Letters MS62 PCGS. B-3, BB-71, R.2. Ex: Cardinal Collection. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. A die dot to the right of the second digit in the date appears to make the date read 17.97. The reverse has large letters in the legend, and there are eight berries in the left branch, with the lowest berry near the ribbon bow on the outside of the wreath. A leaf ends under the middle of E in STATES. There are three leaves below the left (facing) wing. Die State III shows relapping on both sides--the highest wave of hair under the upright of B in LIBERTY is incomplete, as are the right edges of several palm leaves. This is the die state usually seen.

The silver-gray luminous surfaces of this MS62 example display occasional splashes of light golden-tan and bluish-violet. A relatively well executed strike imparts strong definition to the design features, including most of the star centrils, Liberty's hair strands and drapery, the branch leaves, and the eagle's plumage, with the exception of weakness in the lower right breast and right (facing) leg. Light diagonal adjustment marks run from upper right to lower left through Liberty's portrait, terminating in the 1 of the date and in stars 1 through 4. Light clash marks are visible in the right obverse field. A few minor handling marks are noted on each side, but these do not detract from the overall appeal of this attractive early dollar. This coin traces its history to several famous collections, including the R.L. Miles Collection and the Cardinal Collection. Population: 2 in 62, 3 finer (10/13).
