Early U.S. Dollars (We specialize in this series!)

(Please note that "B" designation is a citation of the variety number system in "The United States Early Silver Dollars from 1794 to 1803" by M.H. Bolender, Fifth Revised Edition. The "BB-" designation is from "Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States, A Complete Encyclopedia" by Q. David Bowers,  Volume One, 1993.)

Draped Bust Type, Small Eagle Reverse

1797 SILVER DOLLAR, DRAPED BUST TYPE, SMALL EAGLE, total of 7,776 minted, the smallest mintage of any year from 1795 to 1803. ANACS XF-40, B-3,  BB-71, 10x6 stars, Large letters in legend, 8 berries in left branch, lowest berry near ribbon bow is on outside of wreath, on reverse Liberty and some other letters bifurcated.  Large plainchant with well defined denticles. With very light mint adjustment marks on reverse, very small edge bump.  Breen in his complete encyclopedia cites this type as Breen 5374, (p.427), Bolender 3, (BB-71), H-3, and Robinson 823.  Breen identified this type as the 2,493 minted of May 26-June 30 1797, Hilt believes all were minted in 1798 and there is much speculation on actual mintage. Many examples show adjustment marks which are characteristic.  Bolender, Fifth Edition, list this coin as R-2.  Bowers states in his book that all 1797s are scarce as does many other sourses, and says that even collectors to whom money was not a question, their collections were more likely to average below EF grade than above it. Prices for this coin are rising fast as collectors find nice examples scarce to find and this area grows in serious collector interest.  Priced at $11,500 in a recent Coin Values issue in 2010. It is estimated that only 1,625 1797s may exist in all grades, while Bowers in 1993 estimates that for 1797 BB-71s there are just 1,250 to 2,000 coins or on his Universal Rarity Scale a 12.    $10,375.00 (945950)

Heraldic Eagle Reversed

 1799 HERALDIC EAGLE REVERSE SILVER DOLLAR, Perfect Date, Large Berries, 7 & 6 stars, type with apostrophe after final S in states on reverse.  Bolander 9, (BB-166). Breen 5391. Scarce die state IV. Pleasing NGC VERY FINE  details, cleaned likely long ago as most early dollars have been in their long history of circulation. Reasonably free of problems with nice steel gray toning. Great, better grade, early American type coin at a reasonable price. Picture available. $2,300.00

1799 HERALDIC EAGLE REVERSE SILVER DOLLAR, Perfect Date, Large Berries, Obverse 7 & 6 stars, reverse 13 stars, type without apostrophe after final S in states on reverse.  Pleasing original Extra FINE (XF-40+) lovely gun metal tone with underlining luster. Great, better grade, early American type coin at a reasonable price. $4,290.00

1799 HERALDIC EAGLE REVERSE, SILVER DOLLAR, Perfect Date, Obverse die #3, 7 & 6 stars, reverse 13 stars, Reverse die #C,  B-19, BB-155, R-5, NGC VF-35, probably, in our opinion, a strong candidate for XF.  This is a coin with a very strong claim to a higher grade and its especially smooth partly glossy light gray gun metal surface has very few abrasions and to the eye is very attractive. It is, according to Bowers, a late more "rare" obverse die stage IV, which has the characteristic die crack going from the edge border under bust through bottom of last 9, center of 179, and first three stars on left to border, plus the crack from star 2 to hair, and even more rare an unlisted, one forming from star 3 towards hair. The reverse has the characteristic die crack from edge through D in UNITED. A Rare die marriage and die state. The 1799 B-19 is particularly rare in grades above normal VF. This is, in short, an original naturally toned Very Choice high end VF, the obverse awash in attractive gray patina with hints of glossy orange/gold luster near devices and the reverse with rich steel-gray toning. The strike is mostly above average for the variety with much detail even in the centers on the reverse. The wings and shield areas show almost no wear, while the left motto area is weakly struck but readable, which is frequent for this die marriage. Bowers notes that "reverse stars always weakly impressed." Light moderate even wear is noted. Attractive appearance, and definitely problem free in the context of the assigned grade. This is a top coin for the Draped Bust variety collector with its very rare R-5 designation, which does not come up often in sales. Bowers notes that there may be approximately only 60-100 of the BB-155 (B-19) in all grades and only 12 from AU and above.  $3,950.00*v

1802/1 SILVER DOLLAR, HERALDIC EAGLE REVERSE SILVER DOLLAR, Draped Bust Type, ANACS XF-45 (Choice Extra Fine), B-3 (BB-234), (H-3), nice dark patina, the sought over-date, Wide overdate, with the most space between 8 and 0. Nicely struck on reverse, dark original gun-metal tone with some luster showing under tone, wings fully struck-up and clear details. Reverse B.  Listed in early Bolender as R-3 "Scarce" and revised as R-1 in 5th Edition. Now cited as R-2 in some sources with just 575 population.  Quality early dollars are rising fast in this market.  In a major coin publication an ANACS same graded 1802/1 was being offered for $9,885.00.  Our's is just $6,400.00 (945949)

1802 HERALDIC EAGLE REVERSE SILVER DOLLAR, Close perfect date, wide space between 8 & 0, Right foot of T in LIBERTY missing, characteristic of type. B-6, (BB-241), Breen 5400. A tougher date for this type, some nice luster remains with light golden toning over excellent surfaces, strong even strike. Classic early American coin. R-1 in Revised Edition of 1988. All struck in 1804. NGC VERY FINE details, apparently having been cleaned long ago but little evidence of this shows to the naked eye. Above average specimen for its grade in our opinion with just a few very small nicks/digs on obverse. Picture available. Nice for a type collection of early dollars.  $2,300.00
