This is a counterfeit coin called a Dexter dollar. This coin has the wrong shape of stars , lack of detail in the face and hair, poorly struck letters on both sides and several other red flags that tell me this is a Dexter dollar and not an 1804 Draped Bust Dollar.I have compared it to the 1804 silver dollar in my Guide Book of United States Coins 2016, Kenneth Bressett, and this is a coin that would be worth 2million to 4million if it were real because there are only 8 known coins with one reverse design with the word States near the clouds ($4.1 million) and only 6 known coins with the word states moved an bit to the left of the clouds ($2.3million)This coin has the wrong shape of stars , lack of detail in the face and hair, poorly struck letters on both sides and several other red flags that tell me this is a later coin or a restrike/reproduction.This website below has pictures so that you can see what I mean.http://www.silver-coins.org/1804_draped_bust_dollar.htmlThis coin you have is worth about $60 to $70.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
