    Uncirculated 1803 Small 3 Dollar
    B-4, BB-254

    1803 $1 Small 3 MS61 NGC. B-4, BB-254, R.3. The top of the 3 in the date is thin, the 1 firmly touches the curl, stars 7 and 8 are distant from the L and Y of LIBERTY, stars 4 and 5 and 5 and 6 are closer together than any of the others, and stars 10 and 11 and 12 and 13 are wider apart than any others. On the reverse, the first A in AMERICA touches the third feather, and a leaf points more toward the left corner of the base of I in AMERICA.
    Light to medium intensity bluish-gray and golden-gray patina bathes lustrous surfaces on this MS61 dollar, and a well executed strike leaves sharp definition on the design features that are nicely centered on the planchet. The reverse dentilation is strong, while that along the lower left obverse border is incomplete. Both sides are quite clean, except for a noticeable linear abrasion on Liberty's cheek.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24XD, PCGS# 6900)

    Weight: 26.96 grams
