Description1800 Draped Bust Dollar, HOUCK'S / PANACEA / BALTIMORE. VF Host; XF Counterstamp. Brunk H-779, Rulau HT-142. Loaf-shaped depression with raised letters. Only four early U.S. dollars are known with the mark. Among the four known counterstamped early dollars with Jacob Houck's mark, this near-perfect example ranks among the most famous. Beautifully centered and sharply struck on Liberty's neck, the countermark is deep and reflective. Even the apostrophe in HOUCK'S is sharp. Its full-page image received equal billing with the previous lot (the 1795 Flowing Hair dollar) and garnered an equally high bid. This coin was formerly in the Dr. George Fuld Collection.
Ex: Dr. George Fuld Collection; Van Ormer Collection (Bowers and Merena, 9/1985), lot 2695; The Princeton Collection et al (Bower and Merena, 9/1986), lot 5324; Donald Groves Partrick.
