Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves AU58 NGC. B-7, BB-18, R.2. Die State I. The final star is fully below the bust truncation, and the reverse features seven berries on each branch. Apricot and battleship-gray patina embraces this momentarily circulated example, which has noticeable satiny luster throughout the legends and devices. The reverse has a faint handling mark near 2 o'clock, a minute rim ding at 5 o'clock, and a tiny sky-blue toning fleck below the left (facing) wing. Neither side has any other relevant abrasions, which is noteworthy for such a large silver coin. High grade Flowing Hair dollars are among the most challenging type issues among the early series, and this Three Leaves example offers a magnificent opportunity.
