1797 Draped Bust Dollar. 9 stars left, 7 right, small letters. ANACS graded EF-40. One of just two reported double struck examples of this scarce variety. On this particular coin, the reverse is double struck with a slight shift between the first and second strikes, and doubling can be seen on the wreath, wings, AMERICA, leaves and ribbon. It is interesting to note that this variety has long been considered rare, but over the past few decades research has shown that at least 100 exist of this variety, but it remains in constant demand by Guide Book, major variety and specialists alike, all of whom need an example of this variety. The surfaces of this coin are average to slightly below, with some toning breaks on the upper points of Liberty's hair and neck, and the reverse shows rim nicks above ITE of UNITED. Minor adjustment marks can be seen around the rim of the reverse, and some light scratches are also present. Toned a deep steel gray, and quite natural in appearance.
Estimated Value $5,000 - 7,000.
From the John Haugh collection and we were unable to trace a prior appearance.

Realized $5,290
