Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves Fine 15 NGC. B-12, BB-26, R.6. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. Early dollar collectors know that most 1795 Flowing Hair examples are either B-5 or B-1. Less often, B-2, B-4, B-6, or B-7 are encountered. B-12 is rare, and those who specialize in die varieties should be thankful for the "common" marriages, since they make the present lot affordable by satisfying type demand. Toned stone-gray and caramel-gold, and unabraded aside from a barely noticeable obverse rim ding at 6 o'clock. One roundish strike-through (as made) near the right wreath stem.
