1800 Draped Bust Dollar. AU-53. Lovely antique gray toning on both sides and very original. Well struck on the obverse, with excellent definition on the upper curls of Liberty, and well centered too, with long dentils surrounding. On the reverse the die was cracked, which allowed for minor weakness on the right side of the shield and wing. This is actually a much later die state than mentioned in Bolender, but others have been seen with the shattered reverse as seen here. Problem free for the date and grade, with no significant rim marks or adjustment marks, just a very pleasing coin from an old time collection.
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.

Realized $3,565
