Description

    Mint State 1799 Bust Dollar

    1799 MS 62 NGC. B-21, BB-169. Die crack through date. An upper Condition Census example of this moderately scarce variety. We have been unable to trace the exact pedigree of this important piece, but by way of identification both sides display medium density gray patina with faint undertones of rose and darker accents on Liberty's profile and the reverse shield. Just a bit off-center on both sides, the obverse denticles on the left side are considerably longer, as are the corresponding left denticles on the reverse. The mint luster is complete, albeit slightly subdued, and disturbed only by a tiny abrasion above the eagle's head. An appealing type coin. (NGC ID# 24X7, PCGS# 6878)

    Weight: 26.96 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
