1795 Draped Bust Dollar. Off-center bust. PCGS graded EF-45. Lovely old Wayte Raymond toning at the periphery of the obverse and reverse, while the centers remain soft silvery gray. Examination will note a hidden and shallow scratch from the lowest part of ribbon into the field below and through several curls and ending near the 1 in the date. The obverse shows minor adjustment marks, some on the rim near the date, others at the center. We note that the surfaces are generally better than average, and the rims show only one low area above the TY of LIBERTY where we see what appears to be a tiny edge flaw. Nice for the grade assigned.
Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,500.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Ira S. Reed in his final auction sale on March 30, 1946 for $44.00.

Realized $6,613
