Expert Comments

Ron Guth: Bruce Morelan, in an interview with PCGS in 2016, spoke about his PCGS MS65 example: “1803 is probably my favorite coin of the Draped Bust dollars and the reason for that is not even apparent at first glance. If, same as the 1794, if you have that coin out of the holder and you turn the light, you see the absolute virgin surfaces on Miss Liberty's cheek and breast and neck. It's one of the things that really attracts me to spectacular, early gems, when they have that glow, that patina that you know that coin's never been cleaned. That vibrancy is spectacular and that coin has it.”
