1799 Draped Bust Dollar. . B-9, BB-166, Rarity 1. PCGS graded EF-40. Shades of soft gold and rose toning. 1799 BB-166 and BB-163 are the most plentiful varieties of the year. It seems likely that about 1,000 to 1,800 of each are known, in the view of the Bowers reference book on early dollars. "The population of BB-166 is distributed in a bell curve -- few extremely worn ones, some VG, more in Fine grade, a cluster at VF, fewer EF, still fewer AU, and only a small number of Mint State examples." Pop 1; 2 in 58. (PCGS # 40057) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.
The Dr. Hesselgesser Duplicate Bust Dollar Collection.

Realized $3,565
