Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves AU53 PCGS. B-5, BB-27, R.1. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. Blue-green and russet shades overlie the slate-gray obverse. The reverse has rich mottled cobalt-blue and stone-gray patina. Mint-caused adjustment marks cross the central obverse and make a peripheral appearance near the date and the L in LIBERTY. However, both sides are nearly unabraded save for a faint mark beneath star 8 and an inconspicuous pinscratch aligned with the contour of Liberty's neck. Luster shimmers from the hair, stars, wreath, and legends. The familiar Bolender-5 variety is readily identified by a diagonal die line behind Liberty's highest hair curl.
