Choice HOLD
Large Eagle Type, Natural Coin Gray, Nicely Preserved, Circulated Cameo Eye Appeal. I don't know about you, but I certainly prefer my early Draped Bust dollars with natural coin gray surfaces with circulating cameo eye appeal. This FUN new purchase screams originality along with retaining its steely fields. The visual presentation is superior to most seen at the VF grade level. A 10x inspection of this large silver piece do not locate a single mark requiring mention. Fairly priced and guaranteed to please the new owner. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval.
Draped Bust  1798 1798
Pointed 9, Wide Date
BB-104 B-22
Choice $4325 Superb Preservation, Crusty Coin Gray Patina, Pristine Surfaces. At GFRC, Dan White are quite particular for adding Draped Bust dollars to inventory. Offerings must be strictly original with natural coin gray shades. This 1798 BB-104 B22 example is perfect at grade given the crusty toning and pristine surfaces. It is difficult to imagine a coin of this size being in circulation without being contacted in the fields. The "Wide Date" variety also brings a type set opportunity given its availability and pricing. Whatever your reason for draped bust dollar shopping, this example is guaranteed to please and will be terribly difficult to upgrade. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval.
Draped Bust  1799 1799
8x5 Stars
B-23 BB-159
Choice $4250 8x5 Stars, Crusty Brownish-Gray, Steely Fields, Choice Surfaces. An early die state 8x5 Stars example with uniform brownish gray patina and steely fields. Surfaces are essentially unabraded with a well hidden obverse planchet defect to the left of the hair ribbon. Dirt fills in a portion of the reverse vertical shield lines and several letters in the legend as a testament to the originality. Strike is uniform and pleasing. The only major 1799 dollar variety with blundered star placement leading to 8 stars being punched on the left obverse and corrected with five stars on the right obverse. 10x inspection confirms an early die state as there are no die cracks on either side. A popular variety that is always in demand. Housed in new large font NGC holder. The holder label does not illustrate the 8x5 stars attribution which I find so odd for a premier grading service. Please note that the lower obverse green hues are a photography artifact and not present on the coin. This piece is a consistent color.
