    1799/8 Draped Bust Dollar, AU58
    15 Stars Reverse, B-3, BB-141

    1799/8 $1 15 Stars Reverse, B-3, BB-141, R.3, AU58 NGC. Bowers Die State III. Although many collectors are content with a single 1799/8 silver dollar, specialists recognize that those pieces with 13 reverse stars and others with 15 reverse stars are important variations, and opt to include both pieces in their collections. Obviously advanced die variety collectors take it one additional step and acquire the 15 Stars Overdate as well as both varieties of the 13 Stars Overdate. This example has nearly full luster visible beneath deep gray and gold toning across each side. The surface quality is excellent, although Liberty's neck has a few minor blemishes. Census (for the variety): 4 in 58, 3 finer (7/20).
