1797 Draped Bust Dollar. 10 stars left, 6 right. Sharpness of Fine-15 but cleaned. This one has been cleaned in the past, and we note some dark patina clinging near the devices, especially on the reverse, and this coin may have been exposed to a hostile environment at some time in the past. Here is another spectacular double strike, although in a more moderate grade. The separation between the strikes was approximately 1 millimeter. We note a rim bump on the obverse at 11:00 o'clock, and a scratch down Liberty's face and neck from her ear. Not the prettiest coin in this collection, but quite interesting for the specialist in errors.
Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,500.
From Bowers & Merena's LaRiviere Part II Sale, March 2001, Lot 329 and the John Haugh collection.

Realized $4,255
