1803 Draped Bust Dollar, AU55
1803 $1 Small 3 AU55 PCGS. B-5, BB-252, R.3.
Bowers-Borckardt Die State I. The BB-252 variety is identified by
the small numeral 3 placed high in the date and a spur on the
outside lower-right curve of the D in UNITED. This was the only use
of the obverse die, but the hardy reverse was used to strike six
other varieties from 1801-1803. With a surviving population of
500-950 coins, the BB-252 is relatively easy to locate in lower
circulated grades, but the issue is very scarce in AU.
Popular B-5, BB-252 Variety
The present coin is an attractive Choice AU specimen with well-detailed design elements that show just a trace of wear on the high points of the design. The pleasing lavender-gray and golden-brown surfaces are lightly abraded and retain flashes of original mint luster, with a few hints of amber on the reverse. Population: 13 in 55, 15 finer (12/13).
