B-8 BB-125
Choice $4000 Pointed 9, 4 Lines, Choice Original, Crusty Gray Patina, CAC Approval, Osprey Collection. Moderately crusty gray fields contrast well with the lighter central devices on this 1798 Draped Bust dollar. A later die state BB-125 example with heavy die crack through the olive leaves and through AMERI(C)A. As with many dollars of the late 18th Century, strike uniformity was a casualty of primitive minting presses. This Osprey Collection offering has a bold strike on the right obverse but sees poor stars definition on the left obverse. A common 1798 die variety with Pointed 9 and four shield verticals on the reverse shield. An ideal candidate as a type coin due to lack of any die variety premium. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 Dupont hologram holder with CAC approval.

Case in point is this choice 1798 Large Eagle with crusty olive-gray patina and circulated cameo eye appeal. Steely fields are essentially unabraded with just a touch of micro chatter on the right obverse field. The strict originality and cameo eye appeal warrant a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation as well preserved pieces of this caliber are few and far between.

B-8, BB-188
Original $1450 Impressive Circulated Cameo Eye Appeal, Ebony-Gray Fields, Rim Marks, Osprey Collection. Consistent ebony-gray fields lead to serious circulated cameo eye appeal on this 1800 B-8 Draped Bust dollar. Though the fields have been well preserved in terms of marks, the rims have not. Random bumps are seen on the edges of the rims on both sides though difficult to view and photograph, even with the edge view insert. When performing in-hand viewing, the edge issue is not consequential. If in the market for an early dollar with original surfaces and excellent eye appeal while on a tight budget, this new Osprey Collection offering might be worth considering. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
