1800 Draped Bust Dollar, MS62
Scarcer B-8, BB-188 Variety

1800 $1 MS62 PCGS. B-8, BB-188, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. The 1800 Draped Bust dollar claims a fairly large mintage of 220,920 pieces, with 16 die varieties known for the date. This coin represents the BB-188 variety, easily recognized by the die dot near the inside of the left upright of R in LIBERTY. The BB-188 is a scarce variety, with an estimated surviving population of 150-275 pieces in all grades.
Q. David Bowers knew of only two Mint State BB-188 specimens when he wrote his series reference in 1993, so this attractive MS62 example may be one of the finest known of the variety. The design elements are well-detailed, especially on the obverse, with just a touch of weakness apparent on the central reverse. Both sides display satiny mint luster, with iridescent shades of gold, gray, and ice-blue toning. This piece shows remarkably few contact marks for an early dollar. Population (not differentiated by variety): 7 in 62, 12 finer (11/11).
Ex: Hesselgesser Collection; Boston Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 8/2010), lot 1056.
