Late-State 1800 'Dotted Date' Dollar, B-14a, BB-194, VF301800 $1 Dotted Date VF30 PCGS. B-14a, BB-194, R.3. Die State IV. In this late and scarce die state, several cracks are noted on each side. Most notable are the prominent break from the first 0 in the date, up through the top left of the second 0, to the bust; and a crack from ED through the left wing, the lower part of the clouds, and through OF. Bowers' silver dollar Encyclopedia notes concerning this variety, "As is the case with the AMERICAI variety, the value of the Dotted Date is enhanced by die flaws, a curious situation from the viewpoint of logic. Ever since Richard S. Yeoman listed it in the Guide Book as a 'major variety,' it has been inordinately popular." This example has deep mahogany patina on each side, with no singular abrasions.
