There is a mistake in the PCGS population data which is shown in the Miller Collection of Early Dollars. For the 1800 Wide Date, Low Eight, Americai (BB-191) variety, the PCGS data shows the total pop as 1. That coin would be the Miller PCGS MS 62 +.
I own an 1800 Wide Date, Low Eight, Americai PCGS XF 45, CAC. The PCGS insert for my coin states BB-191, which clearly establishes my XF 45 as an 1800 Wide Date, Low Eight, Americai. The Cardinal Collection has a BB 191 in PCGS AU 58, and the Hesselgesser shows an AU 50. The total PCGS pop data for this variety BB-191 should be at least 4, (not 1, as listed in the Miller Collection PCGS total pop column). The 4 coins are the Miller MS 62+, the Cardinal AU 58, the Hesselgesser AU 50, and my XF 45
