Lustrous MS62 1800 "Dotted Date" Dollar, Possibly Ex: WGC

1800 $1 Dotted Date MS62 NGC. B-14, BB-194. This relatively common variety is always available in the lower circulated grades. However, in Mint State it is a major condition rarity. This particular coin may well be the second finest example known of the variety. The finest example is an NGC MS65 from the Cardinal Collection that we offered in our 1997 ANA Sale. This coin appears to be the coin owned by Freddie Boyd and sold as lot 100 in Abe Kosoff's The World's Greatest Collection in 1945. In the Bowers tome on dollars, that coin was described as, "An Unc. gem, with brilliance of original mint lustre. Nick on chin. Rare." It is that mention of a nick on the chin in addition to this coin's superior grade that make us believe this could be the Boyd specimen. Unfortunately, that coin was not photographed in the WGC catalog, but it sold for $70 on a $50 estimate, indicating the premium grade of the piece. The buyer of that coin was Adolph Friedman, Kosoff's friend. Friedman purchased approximately two-thirds of Boyd's collection of early silver dollars. Most were offered again in the 1949 ANA Sale.
This is an absolutely splendid early dollar. The surfaces are bright and lustrous with a slight overlay of gray-golden patina on each side that deepens to sea-green around the margins. Fully struck in all areas, and quite unusual as such, with fully detailed stars, deeply impressed hair curls, and complete feathers on the eagle. The only mark of any consequence on either side is the above-mentioned angling mark on Liberty's chin. An important, high grade example of this popular 1800 dollar variety. (#6889) (Registry values: P1) (PCGS# 6889)
