1797 SILVER DOLLAR - BOLENDER 2

From Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", June 5-7, 2000, Lot 1585, where it was described as follows:
"1797 Draped Bust Small Eagle Stars 9 + 7 Bolender-2 VF20. Irregular russet and streaky gray color. A few marks in the field before the face; one small shiny pit mark above the eagle's left wing (from the viewer's perspective). Characteristic shallow reverse strike resulting in lack of detail on the eagle. Scarce just the same and a worthwhile choice for the collector of modest means."
