Jaime Hernandez:

The 1796 $1 Small Date with Large Letters Silver Dollar is scarce in any condition. And it is very rare in Uncirculated condition. Differentiating the Small Date and the Large Letters is fairly easy to tell apart, especially once you compare it to the Large Date Small Letters variety.
