1800 B-13, BB-193 Normal Date Rarity 4. PCGS graded AU-55. Subset of PCGS # 6887. In a new secure plus holder. Condition Census. This is a strongly struck example, with excellent detail to all the important high points: a needle-sharp obverse paired to a wholesomely bold reverse. Where usually one finds flat detail, every point on the design rises into fullness. Where sometimes you'll see the add on "with the possible exception of these regions (standard for the issue)", we are thrilled to say that no such add on is required. A solid coin, then, with areas of luster remaining.

1800 BB-193, as we know the variety today, is one of the most plentiful dollars of the year, and is about tied with BB-187 as the most common. An estimated 76 to 200 are known. In the present text, the population of BB-193 includes what used to be called Bolender-18, from the same dies, but a later state with clashing. Today, specialists recognize Bolender-18 as simply a later die state of BB-193. This coin was considered B-13 all along. The rare Die State I. Pop 1; 1 finer in 58 for the variety (PCGS # 40077) .
Estimated Value $15,000-UP.
The Dr. Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $11,213
