Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves XF45 PCGS. B-5, BB-27, R.1. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. The 1795 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves variety known as the B-5, BB-27 is a boon to all numismatists, as without it, the type would be considerably less available. The obverse style is generally known as the Head of 1795, with pointed bust tip far from star 15. The well-known diagnostic on the obverse is the extra bar of metal that appears behind the middle hair curls. This Choice XF early dollar displays gorgeous eye appeal with iridescent rim toning contrasting against dove-gray (obverse) and pinkish-gray (reverse) centers with a totally original appearance. The die crack from the olive-stem tip is just beginning to form.
