Description:
Splendid 1798 Draped Bust Dollar
Large Eagle, Pointed 9
B-19, BB-106, MS61
1798 $1 Large Eagle, Wide Date, Pointed 9 MS61 NGC. B-19, BB-106, R.4. A large mintage of 327,536 silver dollars was achieved in 1798, split among two major design types and 32 die varieties. The present coin is a representative of the B-19 variety, characterized by the wide date and obverse star placements, with star 7 near the L in LIBERTY and stars 8 and 13 equidistant from Y and the bust. The reverse features the Heraldic Eagle design, with the stars in an arc pattern. Q. David Bowers states B-19 is one of the rarer varieties of this date, with an estimated surviving population of 80-140 examples. The B-19 variety was first described in Haseltine's Type Table Catalog (John W. Haseltine, 11/1881), lot 118. Haseltine remarked, "Very fine, very rare variety."
The present coin is a splendid specimen of this early dollar. Well, but not quite fully struck, with deep blue and rose toning on both sides. Census: 14 in 61, 28 finer (3/09).(Registry values: P1) (PCGS# 6877)
