    1797 Draped Bust Dollar, AU53
    10x6 Stars, B-3, BB-71

    1797 $1 10x6 Stars, Large Letters, B-3, BB-71, R.2, AU53 NGC. Bowers Die State III. Just three die varieties are known for the 1797 dollars, and each is a distinctive Guide Book type. Obverse dies have the stars arranged with nine left and seven right on two varieties, and 10 left and six right (as seen here) on the third variety. The nine by seven stars coins come with either Large Letters or Small Letters on the reverse. As the most plentiful variety, the B-3 dollar is an excellent choice for date or type collectors. This piece has pewter-gray surfaces with hints of pale blue and champagne on the obverse, and nearly full ivory color on the reverse. It is an excellent example with mostly sharp design features and exceptional eye appeal.
