The Eliasberg Collection 1800 'Dotted Date'
1800 $1 Dotted Date MS64 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. B-14, BB-194,
R.3. Die State IV. This is the well-known Dotted Date variety, so
named for the small die chips that encircle the first 0. Bowers
comments in his Silver Dollar Encyclopedia that "tiny
dot-like die breaks appear in many other places, particularly
between L and I, under nose, before chin, below first star, and
under the 6th and 7th stars. The steel used to make this die must
have been defective."
Silver Dollar, B-14, BB-194, MS64
Likely Third in the Condition Census
In the Eliasberg Collection, the catalogers wrote that the present coin was high in the Condition Census, apparently behind only the "MS-63" specimen from the F.C.C. Boyd "World's Greatest Collection," with the third finest known an AU50 coin. Since then a couple of clearly phenomenal specimens have been certified, including two Gem coins (MS66 and MS65 NGC, respectively) that we handled in January 2002. The Boyd example is today untraced, and it is unclear how it would grade by today's standards. The present coin is still clearly within the (enhanced) Condition Census, likely third behind the two coins mentioned, unless the Boyd specimen would grade MS65 or finer by today's standards.
This coin is mostly grayish-gold with tinges of pinkish-gold appearing on the reverse along with a bit of electric blue. The few tiny contact marks appearing on the high points are scarcely visible without a loupe, and in any case are far from distracting.
