Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves XF45 NGC. B-5, BB-27, R.1. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II with the die crack from the left stem reaching toward the rim but not yet to it. The B-5 or BB-27 is the commonest (but still immensely desirable) Three Leaves variety with the diagonal bar in the left obverse field, level with the top strand of hair. This variety is seen nearly as often as every other die marriage combined, and as such it is the ideal candidate for a type collection. Both sides have exquisite gold and iridescent toning over satiny luster, and aside from a rim bump near 2 o'clock on the obverse, the coin is well-preserved for the grade.
