1801 Draped Bust Dollar. . B-2. PCGS graded AU-58. Gorgeous original toning on both sides, the obverse deep gray with ample russet and red hues near the devices, the reverse similar with even brighter colors set off by the luster in the fields. Average handling marks expected for the near mint state grade, and a few old hairlines too. 1801 silver dollars are very scarce in higher grades as seen here, PCGS has graded 8 this high, and importantly only 3 as mint state above. Don't delude yourself into thinking this is a "common" date bust dollar. As to the strike, this one is decent, with definition on Liberty's curls save for the uppermost ones that show light wear. Identifiable by a very minor pin scratch through the lower left side of the O in OF up to the left through the rim.
Estimated Value $9,000 - 11,000.
Purchased privately several years ago from a prominent dealer.

Realized $18,400
