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!

B-10. BB--190. Wide Date. Very well struck with lots of rich mint luster shining thru a light silver-gray patina. A beautiful coin that seems under-graded as it is extremely close to mint state.
B-14, BB-194, Dotted Date. This variety is easily recognized by dots above, inside and below the first 0 of the date. This example has strong eye appeal with solid detail and nice steel-gray surfaces.
Warm steel gray and well struck. Solid for the grade. Only a scant 54,454 were minted; yet, it trades at a similar price as the 1799 which has 8 times the mintage.
