Description:
Memorable MS63 1800 Dollar
B-13, BB-193, Perfect Dies
1800 $1 MS63 PCGS. CAC. B-13, BB-193, R.4. Bowers-Borckardt Die State I, perfect dies without clash marks or the die crack through the tops of the letters in AMERICA; this is the "original" B-13, since the later die states of the BB-193 were previously described in Bolender under a separate number, B-18. Q. David Bowers wrote in his 1993 reference Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States:

"For many years, Bolender-13 was considered to be one of the rarer varieties of 1800, while Bolender-18 was one of the more common issues. Auction data suggest that 'old' B-13 coins were about three and one-half times rarer than 'old' B-18 coins. As might be expected 'old' B-13 coins were considered to be great rarities in high grades."

While Bowers continues by suggesting that the merger of the two Bolender varieties under one Bowers-Borckardt number would lessen demand for quality examples in the early die states, collector awareness of the perfect-die examples' scarcity has not waned, particularly for coins of the highest quality.
This Select survivor combines impressive preservation with striking eye appeal. Strong luster filters through rich gold-orange, slate-blue, and rose-gray toning, and strong electric-blue color dominates the obverse rims. An apparent curling flaw in the date area is on the holder and not the coin; the most significant indicator for pedigree purposes, aside from the distinctive toning, is a small diagonal mark below Liberty's chin.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24X9, PCGS# 6887)
