This lovely half dollar acquired only minimal wear in circulation. The strike is quite good overall, the devices are bold and the borders fully denticulated from expert centering of the planchet. Warmly patinated in a blend of silver-gray and pink-apricot patina, with mostly small, wispy abrasions. A few minor adjustment marks along the left reverse border are as struck. Sure to appeal to the high grade type collector who desires an example of the conditionally challenging, two year Flowing Hair half dollar series of 1794-1795.
