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.

Gem $19000 Gem Original, Giun Metal Gray, Golden Luster, Perfect Surfaces, Fully Struck, Denver Collection. A magnificent offering from the Denver Collection that must be enjoyed by viewing in hand to fully appreciate preservation state and overall beauty. The Denver Collection is a new GFRC consignor. His first offering is a substantial 1802/1 Draped Bust dollar graded PCGS AU55 with CAC approval. This is no ordinary or run of the mill Draped Bust dollar. Rather it is an absolute gem with perfectly original surfaces throughout. Then there is the golden cartwheel luster that tickles the eyes...wow! The base toning is light transparent gray with rich golden hues at the rims. A CoinFacts review indicates (15) graded in AU55 and (11) in AU58 but where are they since no auction records exist for either grade? In mint state, this overdate become very rare with mid five digit to low six digit pricing. How can you go wrong with this Denver Collection example given the superior eye appeal, luster and CAC approval? Strike is also well executed with rounded stars and uniform reverse devices. For variety specialists, this piece is the B-1, BB-231 Close Date variety. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert and conservatively graded.

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.
