1796 Draped Bust Dollar. Small date, large letters. PCGS graded VF-35. Even and subtle iridescence has settled over antique gray surfaces. Well centered and sharply impressed by the dies. The surfaces have lost their original luster but the abrasions are minor and even in their distribution. Techincal detail on the obverse is more Extremely Fine in nature while the reverse detail is choice Very Fine, with the feather and breast detail just a tad too worn for XF. It appears that the remnants of several old trivial adjustment marks exist across the middle of Liberty's throat but they are very faint. The 1796 Draped Bust, Small Eagle die marriage is a seriously tough "type" to locate within early dollars. In choice condition for any respective grade, this issue can be very challenging. The present opportunity is an excellent one for those trying to locate an appealing lower grade example of this issue! (PCGS # 6860) .
Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,000.

Realized $5,175
