1799 Draped Bust Dollar. Normal date. PCGS graded VF-30. A slightly better variety for the year, this one boasts mottled gold and blue toning around the rims, and generally silver gray at the centers. We note a nick on Liberty's jaw and a couple of similar ones hidden in her hair. Smooth rims and average surfaces for the grade, and appealing for the color. This one comes with an ancient coin envelope written with a quill pen.
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,200.
From the Benson collection and purchased from Ira S. Reed in May, 1944 for $17.50 and make sure to get the very old coin envelope with this one.

Realized $1,150
