AC-1 1800 Draped Bust Dollar
Struck from 89.2% Fine Silver and 10.8% Copper by the United States Mint. Minted from 1795 – 1803.
NGC has graded this coin: VF 25
Obverse – Chief Engraver of the Mint from 1793 – 1823, Robert Scot, is said to have used a portrait of a society lady as created by Gilbert Stuart. Some accounts identify the woman as Philadelphia socialite, Ann Willing Bingham. With the exception of an extra curl to her hair in 1798, the design remained unchanged. We shall just say the obverse contains a Draped Bust Lady and “1800”.
Reverse – From 1795 – 1797 the design on the reverse side of the Draped Bust portrays a naturalistic bald eagle. These coins are known as “Draped Bust, Small Eagle.”
From 1798 – 1803 portrayal of a heraldic eagle grasping an olive branch and arrows. These coins are known as “Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle.”
Inscribed with “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “E PLURIBUS UNUM”.
