    Lovely 1797 Double Struck Small Eagle Dollar

    1797 $1 10x6 Stars AU58 NGC. Double Struck, although not stated on the holder. B-3, BB-71, R.1. The obverse and reverse are both double struck with approximately a five degree rotation between strikes. However, this feature is not prominent and is best seen with a strong loupe. Apparently the second strike virtually obliterated the initial strike. Examination will discover the 9 from the initial strike touching the second 7, and Liberty's face shows dramatic doubling on her forehead, nose and chin. On the reverse, the right wing of the eagle shows the most doubling with the outline of the initial strike found below the wing feather tips. Doubled on the reverse dentils, but the obverse dentils show minimal evidence of doubling.
    A lovely coin for the grade, with deep gray toning over the surfaces with a touch of blue and green mixed into Liberty's curls and the surrounding fields nearby. An early die state for the collector. The eagle's breast feathers show substantial definition although the highest ones are worn by brief circulation. At least five other double struck examples are known of 1797 silver dollars, curiously each of the three varieties are known to show similar double striking. Early Philadelphia Mint errors are rare and seldom offered, and while this is not the most dramatic double struck Bust dollar, it is certainly in high grade and very attractive.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 24X4, PCGS# 6865)
