1802 Draped Bust Dollar. 2 over 1, narrow date. ANACS graded VF-30. A rare variety that is seldom offered, this coin has the diagnostic lump below the B on the obverse, and the reverse "B" which was used on several die pairings from 1801 to 1803, quickly identifiable by a lump on the lower right curve of the D of UNITED. This is Bowers die state III, and rare as such. Most coins show the obverse crack from the rim to the bust, and this probably terminated the dies use before many were struck. Light gray in color and probably cleaned long ago, but all in all, a well struck, well preserved example of this die pairing. Far and away the rarest of the 1802, 2 over 1 varieties. Our consigner considers this coin to be under graded, and as always, the market will decide the value.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 2,500.
From the John Haugh collection.

Realized $2,530
