1796 SILVER DOLLAR - BOLENDER 4

From Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", June 5-7, 2000, Lot 1582, where it was described as follows:
"1796 Draped Bust Small Eagle Small Date Large Letters Bolender-4 XF45. Another very pleasing, well struck 1796 from this old-time collection. Here, as in many of the other charming Bust Dollars in the set, the surface is medium antique gray. Clearly it is in its original state, never cleaned, untouched and undamaged.

B-4 is from the same small date obverse as B-3, with the following corrections by the engraver: the curl on top of the head and stars on right are perfect. For the reverse, there are eight plain berries in the wreath (in B-1, B-2, and B-3, which share the same Small Letters reverse, there are only 7 berries in the wreath)."
