Description:
Wonderful 1800 B-13, BB-193 Dollar, MS62
1800 $1 B-13, BB-193, R.4, MS62 PCGS. In 1800 Mint records suggest that 220,920 silver dollars were coined, although it is believed that most of those were dated 1799, and that the actual silver dollars carrying the 1800 date were probably struck in 1801 or 1802. The use of dies in years later than appear on them was a common practice in the 1790s and early 1800s.
Today it is considered a scarce variety, despite being labeled among the most plentiful of the year in the Bowers-Borckardt reference. Two varieties in Bolender's reference, B-13 and B-18, are now known to be die states of a single obverse-reverse combination. Early die states of BB-193 used to be called B-13, while later die states used to be called B-18. At one time, the B-13 die combination was considered to be one of the rarities among 1800 dollars.
This example, struck from perfect obverse and reverse dies, is the earliest die state known, and is quite elusive compared to the later die states. At one time, the early state B-13 dollars ranked among the rarities of 1800.
A lovely 1800 dollar, this example is boldly impressed with excellent star detail, full hair definition, and nearly complete breast feathers. Deep steel and pale gold toning in the fields surround the devices, with considerable bright silver luster. A few faint surface marks on each side are expected for the grade, and on this piece they are nearly imperceptible.(Registry values: P1) (PCGS# 6877)
