1802 Draped Bust Dollar. Narrow normal date. PCGS graded EF-40. Medium steel gray and choice overall, but we note a dark streak through the lower right obverse, possibly from a rubber band. Of all the known bust dollars, this is one of the most common varieties. For some reason, these dies just kept on going, and thousands upon thousands were struck. The BB-241, B-6 is quickly recognizable by the missing right foot (serif) on the T of LIBERTY, and the reverse has a small die break connecting the second feather from the top to the rim on the left wing of the eagle. The broken T punch was also used on the reverse of 1801 BB-213, B-3. Overall, this is still a nice coin for the grade assigned.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,700.
From the Benson collection and purchased from David Bullowa on May 25, 1946 for $14.00. It is interesting to note here that Ira S. Reed sold his coin business to David Bullowa in early 1946.

Realized $2,530
