Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves AU53 NGC. B-5, BB-27, R.1. Die State III. By far the commonest variety of early silver dollar, the B-5, BB-27 exists to the extent of probably several hundred to possibly a couple of thousand pieces. The variety is easily attributed, even by neophytes, due to the extra spur or tine of metal behind Liberty's head in the left obverse field, directly behind the topmost wave of hair. This piece shows the typically soft strike through the centers, along with some adjustment marks that appear (scarcely visible without a loupe) in the center obverse just behind Liberty's neck. There is little wear otherwise, however, and few bothersome marks. Both sides are a lovely, deep olive-gold coloration.
