Description:

1800 Draped Bust Dollar, MS62
Scarce B-8, BB-188 Variety
Second Finest Recorded
1800 $1 MS62 PCGS Secure. B-8, BB-188, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III, with a delicate reverse die crack through AMER. 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.

This attractive specimen is recorded as the second finest among the Notable Specimens of BB-188, according to Dave Bowers in his revision of The Encyclopedia of United States Silver Dollars 1793-1804 that was published earlier this year. 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 (6/13).
