1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-27, BB-113. Rarity-2. BB Die State II. Pointed 9, Close Date. AU-58 (PCGS).

Choice AU 1798 Large Eagle Dollar

Lustrous steel gray with lively rose and peach iridescence that springs to life in a bright light source, and with traces of frosty mint bloom in the protected design areas. The design elements are fairly bold, especially on the obverse, and only a few scattered marks come to light under low magnification. We note a patch of natural planchet roughness, as struck, in the field near Liberty's forecurl, though it evades detection by the unassisted eye and is mentioned solely for accuracy. All told, an undeniably choice representative example of the date and grade combination.
