History, Value, and Price Guide for 1800 BB-184 Draped Bust Silver Dollar
Value of 1800 BB-184 Draped Bust Silver Dollar
This Dollar has the catalog numbers: Bowers Borckardt-184, Bolender-12, or Haseltine-12
Obverse: The obverse of this Draped Bust coin uses the same die as BB-182.
Reverse: A die dot inside lower part of E in UNITED, and a more prominent die flaw at lower left side of E in AMERICA. Flaw or crack like a single quotation mark or line to the upper left of U in UNITED. These things quickly distinguish this reverse from all others. Left side of N in UNUM about in a line with edge of eagle’s neck, the only 1800 reverse for which this is true. Smallest letters in E PLURIBUS UNUM of any reverse die used this year. The berries are small. Leaf point under left side of upright of I in AMERICA. Point of upper part of eagle’s beak shuts down near point of star. A does not touch feathers, and AME do not join. A over clouds 2 and 3. Tip of arrowhead under right upright of U in UNITED. The U in UNITED is defective at its upper left corner, from a broken punch, but was hand-corrected by its engraver; thus, this is possibly one of the earliest 1800 dies. The fact that all but two 1799 reverses had small letters in E PLURIBUS UNUM also reinforces this suggestion.
