Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves AU55 NGC. B-5, BB-27, R.1. Die State II. The obverse is lightly toned pearl-gray, while the reverse has pale mauve and apricot patina. Substantial mint luster fills the devices and legends. The reverse border has a few light adjustment marks, but these do not reach any design elements. The eagle's breast has a couple of wispy handling marks, yet the surfaces are certainly clean overall. Flowing Hair Dollars were struck for less than two years before their replacement by the longer-lived Draped Bust type. High-grade survivors of this brief series are under tremendous demand from type set collectors.
