1799 Draped Bust Dollar Variety

A family friend inherited some really cool type coins - half cents to dollars. Most of the coins are low to medium grade with modest values. However, one coin has potential to be relatively valuable (ie $1000+). He only sent me obverse photos of the album pages. I was able to expand the photo to get a better look at the 1799 Draped Bust Dollar. It appears to be genuine and 6 stars facing. But, I’m not an expert on 1799 DBD varieties and I’m especially interested in feedback regarding the unusual appearance of the lower lip area. I’d appreciate any feedback. In the meantime I’ll ask for a reverse photo of the album pages so we can get a better look at the this coin’s reverse (eagle, stars, rim, etc.). Thank you in advance!
