NGC MS-62 (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach" Sale, October 1-3, 2000, Lot 3271, where it was described as follows: "Colorful toning on a base of medium old-silver gray. Well struck stars all have long sharp points. In date, the 180 is large, the 7 small.  This is the last year of the Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle type. Some call it the "Fillet head" style. The estimated mintage of 301,076 coins was accomplished using seven obverse dies and six reverse dies which produced ten different die marriages or varieties. New dies for the obverse and reverse were put into service in the latter part of 1807. This draped bust style was first used in 1796."
