1798 Draped Bust Dollar and 1893-S Morgan Dollar

Our Coins of the Week fall on more of the “scarce” side.

Our first coin is a 1798 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. 1798 is the year that the reverse design changed from the Small Eagle variety to the Large Eagle (or Heraldic Eagle) variety. This particular coin is of the Large Eagle variety and graded VF Details by NGC. While this year is one of the more common dates for a Draped Bust Dollar, the 1798 mintage is still just 287,536.

Our second coin is a 1893-S Morgan Dollar. At a mintage of about 100,000, the 1893-S is one of the key dates for any Morgan Dollar collector. This coin was graded Fine Details by NGC.
