Description:
Uncirculated 1799 Bust Dollar
1799 $1 MS60 PCGS. B-9, BB-166, Die State V. Approximately 1,000-1,800 examples of B-9 are believed extant, a total that makes this die variety the most common 1799 Silver Dollar along with B-10. Still, few Mint State coins are available to today's specialists, with Bowers listing the following specimens in his 1993 reference: Ivy Specimen (MS64); Saunders Specimen (MS64); Stack's Auction '90 Specimen (MS63); Ebsen Specimen (MS63); Baldenhofer Specimen (MS60-65); ANA Centennial Auction Specimen (MS60); Austin Specimen (MS60); Boyd Specimen (MS60); Davis Specimen (MS60); Elder Specimen (MS60); Gable Specimen (MS60); Holmes Specimen (MS60); Schuyler Specimen (MS60); Stack Specimen (MS60; Taylor Specimen (MS60).
We do not know whether the present specimen is one of those listed above, but we have no doubt that it is one of the finer examples of B-9 extant. A late die state, the obverse die is shattered and the diagnostic reverse "apostrophe" after the final S in STATES is extensive. Bowers estimates that 10-20% of the coins extant are of Die State V.
This is a moderately toned coin with steel-gray patina being accented with gold, particularly on the reverse. There are no mentionable abrasions (a curious feature for a coin at the MS60 grade level) and the surfaces exhibit a pleasing, satiny texture. Worth a close look and a premium bid.(#6878) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24X7, PCGS# 6878)
