1797. 9 stars left, 7 right, small letters. B-2 R4. PCGS graded EF-45. Light grey toning on both sides and an attractive example of this scarce draped bust, small eagle Type. The mintage is reported as 7,776 pieces this year, but die research and population figures seem to point to a larger numer in line with the scarcity of the 1796 small eagle issue. Be that as it may, this piece has streaky gray toning with weak detail on the hair and drapery, also the eagle is very bluntly struck, as commonly occurs with Bolender-2. Pop 5; 5 finer. No mint state examples graded by PCGS. (PCGS # 6866) .
Estimated Value $15,000 - 18,000.

Realized $18,975
