1795 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar. BB-27, B-5. Rarity-1. Bowers Die State II. Three Leaves. EF-45 (NGC). Virtually untoned, we see only glints of pale iridescent toning in the protected areas around some of the devices. More direct angles also reveal faint traces of original luster, the finish probably a modest semi-prooflike variant. Overall boldly defined from a well-centered strike, wear is light and commensurate with the EF grade on the NGC insert. A moderate-size abrasion on Liberty's neck is noted, but we see no other distractions of note.
