Die Variety Attribution Wizard


1801 Draped Bust/Heraldic Eagle Dollars


Four die varieties exist for the draped bust dollars dated 1801. Two different obverses were used, and these may be identified based on the spacing of the stars at right and the proximity of the Miss Liberty’s lowest hair curl to the numeral 1.


Select the coin’s star and obverse date positioning: 

“Wide Date” with 1 Separated from Curl
Right Stars Higher/Gap after Star 13
“Close Date” with 1 Very Near Curl
Right Stars Evenly Spaced
