1798 Draped Bust Dollar. Heraldic eagle reverse, close date. ANACS graded EF-40. A scarce die pairing which is not fully appreciated by variety collectors. The obverse die broke early, and all seen to date have a bisecting crack through the 1 of the date to the E of LIBERTY, which produces a curious "V" area in the hair below that letter. This coin appears to be close to Bowers die state III or a bit earlier, as the crack isn't visible above Liberty's head. Lovely dark gray in the fields with lighter silver on the devices of the obverse, the reverse with multicolored tones within the devices which come alive when the coin is examined. The rims, surfaces and devices are all totally problem free and this coin is very choice for the grade. This might be at the low end of the condition census, but there are several known in approximately this grade, with a single mint state coin known.
Estimated Value $1,250 - 2,000.
From the John Haugh collection.

Realized $1,725
