Bust Dollars were made from 1794 to 1804 and include sub-types as follows: --- Flowing Hair (1794-1795) --- Draped Bust, Small Eagle Reverse (1795-1798) --- Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle Reverse (1798-1804).

The 1804 Bust Dollar is one of the most famous of all numismatic rarities and carries a million dollar plus price tag on the rare occasion that one surfaces!
