1798 Draped Bust Dollar. Heraldic eagle reverse, wide date, 13 arrows. ANACS graded VF-35. Dark steel gray and very nice for the moderate grade assigned. This variety is always weakly struck above the eagle, with a few of the stars flat or missing, as well as a cloud, and this was caused several die cracks and by the lack of metal moving when the coin was struck, with high demands to fill Liberty's bust, there wasn't enough pressure to fill in the stars which are opposite. Just missing the condition census, this coin should still bring a premium for the variety.
Estimated Value $1,250 - 2,000.
From the John Haugh collection.

Realized $1,323
