  Coin Gallery Online - 1804 Silver Dollar
The 1804 Dollar may be the single most desired coin in all of numismatic history.
1804 Dollars are described as being in either Class I, II or III.
Keep in mind though, that it was common practice to use dies from previous years (and dated as such) as long as they were still capable of producing acceptable coinage.

 The Dollar of 1804
1804 silver dollars, of which there are just fifteen known, often set price records for rare coins when they're sold.
That price was more recently eclipsed by the sale of another 1804 dollar, known as the "Stickney" specimen, which sold in April, 1997 for a world record price for a rare coin sold at auction at $1,815,000.
Many people are intrigued with the history of 1804 dollars and it's the ultimate coin for many collectors to own.

 1804 Silver Dollars
Certain qualities of the known 1804 Silver Dollars (and other facts concerning their history) indicate that the first 1804 Silver Dollars were struck in or about 1834, when orders came from the State Department for special sets of coins to be struck for diplomatic purposes.
The 1804 silver dollar may not be the rarest of US coins, but it is the most publicized and sought-after piece.
No silver dollar coins were struck beyond early 1804 by the US Mint, and those struck in early 1804 are dated 1803 (early Mint records must be treated carefully, as they report when coins were shipped, not necessarily when they were struck).

 The Real 1804 Silver Dollars - PCGS Library
Arguably, then, the 1803 silver dollar is just as rare in the highest grades as the 1804, since most of the 15 known examples of the "king of U.S. coins" are considered to be in, or close to, mint condition.
Whereas any of the 1804 dollars would bring at least a strong six-figure price in the current marketplace, and quite possibly a million dollars-plus, the 1803 would trade for perhaps $20,000 in MS-63, $30,000 in MS-64, $120,000 in Proof-65 and $200,000 in Proof-66.
The 1803 dollar may not be as famous as the 1804, but it's held in high esteem and great respect.

 Thoughts on Proof 1804 Original and Restrike Silver Dollars (and Their Cousins, the Proofs of 1801-1803)
The choice of this date was the result of the accounting methods employed at the Mint (records were kept of coins struck during the year regardless of the actual dates on the coins).
As far as it is known, the 1804 novodel eagles were not restruck, so all 1804 eagles are "Original" novodets.
The fact that several Class III 1804 dollars are circulated and that virtually all 1801-03 coins are Proof 63 or higher makes one conclude that 1873 or later is the striking period for the 1801-03 dollars.

 USN Ships--USS Intrepid (1804)
Subsequently sold to Tripoli and named Mastico, she participated in the capture of USS Philadelphia on 31 October 1803 and was herself captured by USS Enterprise while en route to Constantinople, Turkey, on 23 December of that year.
Taken into the U.S. Navy early in 1804 and renamed Intrepid, the ketch was placed under the command of Lieutenant Stephen Decatur and assigned a risky, but essential task: the destruction of the captured Philadelphia, whose presence in enemy hands threatened the U.S. Naval position in the Mediterranean.
In late August she was outfitted with a large explosive charge, for use in an attempt to destroy much of the enemy fleet then moored in Tripoli harbor.
