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).
There are quite a few rarities in the Bust Dollar series. The 1794 Flowing Hair Dollar is from the first year the Mint struck regular issue silver coins and commands a handsome price in any grade.
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!

Large Date, Small Letters. BB-65, B-5. This variety is easily identified by a die break connecting the I and C of AMERICA on the reverse. This example shows the die at its' latest stage with the break now triangular and reaching to the rim. A well detailed example of this popular variety and Small Eagle reverse type.
9x7 Stars, Large Letters. Nice original silver-gray patina with gunmetal-blue overtones. The detail is very sharp with just a touch of wear on the highest points with even the exposed breast feathers of the eagle on the reverse being mostly intact. Outstanding for the grade.
Small Eagle, 15 Stars. Well detailed and problem-free with pleasing silver-gray surfaces. The Small Eagle reverse is of course much rarer than the Large Eagle with the 15 Star obverse being scarcer than the 13 star variety. A very attractive example of this tough early dollar.
Evenly struck with bold detail and gorgeous lustrous surfaces. A light splash of golden-tan provides a nice antique accent and validates the originality of the coin. An outstanding Bust Dollar that is just a touch of 'rub' away from being mint state.
Excellent detail for the grade and nice original silver-gray surfaces.
CAC. Well detailed with beautiful smooth battleship gray surfaces. A Gem for the grade!
