1799 Draped Bust Dollar. Normal date. ANACS graded VF-35. A scarce variety that is seldom offered, aside from the large hoard in the Bowers 1989 ANA sale which contained 26 pieces. This coin does not seem to be from that hoard. One small field dig is located at the inside of the fifth star, and another scrape is noted at the top of the branch on the reverse. As always seen, the reverse die is broken with a rim to rim horizontal crack which extends through the wings and upper chest of the eagle. Curiously, the reverse is always much sharper struck than the obverse, which is notoriously weak. Virtually all known of this variety grade EF or lower, as the weakness on Liberty always grades this variety down, while the reverse is always a higher grade.
Estimated Value $1,250 - 2,000.
From the John Haugh collection.

Realized $1,553
