Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves, B-5, BB-27, R.1, XF40 PCGS. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II with a brief radial die crack from left stem toward the rim. Autumn-gold toning enriches the obverse field, while the border is olive-green. The reverse blends lime-green and chestnut-gold patina. Ample luster shimmers from design recesses, and wear is generally limited to the portrait and the eagle's breast. The patient observer will finally locate a few minuscule ticks, and Liberty's cheek has a couple of nearly imperceptible slide marks, but the overall appearance is clean for the XF level. Adjustment marks are unimportant and confined to the obverse margin near 4:30. An excellent opportunity to acquire an attractive example of this widely pursued introductory silver type. Ex: Baltimore ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/2008), lot 1725. From The Cathedral West Collection.
