Wide Date
Original $950 Wide Date, Original, Uniform Gray Patina, Great Type Coin. An attractive example with uniform gray fields and rose hues covering the major devices. Wear is consistent with VG grade. Rim integrity is strong with some strike weakness on the far left obverse rim. Reverse shield is close to being completely defined. There is one rim mark on the reverse at 4:30 which is ancient and provides some additional character.
Draped Bust  1801 1801

Original $2450 Original Medium Gray Surfaces, Uniform Strike, Accurately Graded, Osprey Collection. A strictl original piece with uniform gun metal gray patina throughout obverse and reverse. Strike is typical with some obverse stars and upper hair details being a tad weak. Many old time dealers would not approve with using a 10x loupe to inspect a dollar sized coin for defects. Since I only have one size loupe for all denominations, my inspection tends to be critical for large pieces. In this case, I was unable to locate a blemish to note in the description. Overall, an accurately graded just through PCGS grading and housed in their new 2015 style PCGS holder. A quality piece from the Osprey Collection.

Large 3
B-6, BB-255
Original $8750 Mirrored Fields, Bold Strike, Accurately Graded, ANACS 1994 Photo Proof, Winesteven Collection. An important GFRC offering of an 1803 Large 3 Bolen-6, BB-255 draped bust dollar that was previously encapsulated by ANACS during 1996 with four page Photo Proof documentation. At the time of certification, this choice circulated example was tied for finest at the AU53 grade level at ANACS. The following description was taken directly from the ANACS Photo Proof, "Boldly struck, this example also retains nearly its full luster and rivals the appearance of a Min State coin. Surfaces are remarkaby clean for such a large piece. Diagnostically, numerals 0 and 3 in the date are repunched, and two large die cracks may seen at the eagle's right wingtip. After 1800, silver dollars began to disappear from circulation with many being shipped overseas or melted for silver bullion content. Crossed by the Winesteven Collection collection consignor into current PCGS 2014 generation holder.
