1799 Draped Bust $1 PCGS AU50 CAC




The Draped Bust Dollar represents the first of its design type in American coinage history. Early examples include Liberty on the obverse, with LIBERTY above and the date below and with eight stars to the left and seven to the right. There are some varieties that contain 16 stars and others with 13 stars.

Initial designs featured a Small Eagle on the reverse and these types are rare.

Later designs replaced the Small Eagle with the Heraldic Eagle, while maintaining most of the obverse design. One difference, however, is the star’s placement was standardized to seven on the left and six on the right. The rare exception is a 1799 version which placed eight stars to the left and five to the right.

Large Eagle Bust Dollars were minted from 1798-1803.
