1798 Draped Bust Dollar. Large eagle, wide date, 13 arrows. . B-14, BB-122. NGC graded VF-30. Nice original antique toning on both sides. A problem-free coin. Medium wide date. BB-122 closely resembles BB-124, and is distinguishable by the fact that it has the 8 closer to the bust than does BB-124, while the 11th and 12th stars on BB-122 are much closer together than on BB-124. Obverse die used to strike 1798 BB-122 only. Reverse S, with line star pattern: Claw touches A in AMERICA; the only 1798 reverse with this feature. Somewhere in the range of 350 to 550 1798 BB-122 dollars are believed to exist. The variety is rarely seen above Extremely Fine and may be unknown in Mint State. The distribution of available specimens is weighted toward the low end of the Very Fine category (PCGS # 6877) .
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,200.

Realized $2,070
