1800 Draped Bust Dollar. NGC graded AU-55. This is perhaps the finest known flip over double strike in the Bust dollar series, as all such coins are rare, and we've never heard of another high grade one like this! Further, this is the "Super Liberty" because the second S of STATES is centered directly on her chest drapery. In addition, the date can be made out on the reverse around the right wing as you face the eagle, with portions of the 18 on the wing, and the 00 located on OF. Most of the first strike was obliterated by the second, but enough remains to show that this is clearly something special. Gorgeous colors throughout, with deep blue at the rims, rose and gold elsewhere, and quite lustrous in the fields. One tiny dig is noted above the 8 in the date. We note a couple of rim marks above LIBERTY, but they are hard to see in the holder. An opportunity for the specialist to snag something really fun.
Estimated Value $3,500 - 7,000.
Purchased from J.J. Teaparty at the Portland ANA in 1998 by W. David Perkins, and sold later to John Haugh.

Realized $8,338
