Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. B-5, BB-27, R.1. Bowers-Borckardt Die State III. The B-5, BB-27 is among the more plentiful varieties of the 1795 Flowing Hair dollar, and is often encountered in cabinets of early type collectors. This piece exhibits remarkably bold design elements, with Liberty's hair strands unusually well-defined and the stars strong. The only immediate evidence of wear is seen in a small area of rub on the eagle's breast. NGC notes old cleaning, though the surfaces have since retoned an attractive iridescent bluish-gold patina, with pronounced amber and navy accents on the reverse. No significant abrasions are seen upon close examination, leaving this piece with a pleasing degree of visual appeal.
