Guess the Date of Draped Bust Large Cent

Being a long time lurker has shown me that many people on this forum have skills I do not possess. I've tried many times to fathom a date for this coin to no avail. It would not surprise me though, if no one can solve this puzzle. I appreciate any attempt.
Thank you

    I'm afraid this one is just way too far gone... With so much damage and wear it is virtually impossible to attribute or find a date for it.
    If you could still see any of the reverse designs it might be possible but this coin's seen too much!

    I believe that one is too far gone... with excessive wear and graffiti.... Cheers, RickO

    1796 to 1807........ :)

    I am not responsible for the version of me you created inside your head...

    Yes, I can imagine it to be any date I want and the price was still the same.
    Thank you to everyone who looked. I thought it was too far gone but this forum has some astute coin expertise and wanted to put it out there just in case.

    I want to narrow it down further to 1798-1807 simply because it looks like a 2nd hairstyle, but I'm not 100% sure.
