Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves VF30 NGC. B-5, BB-27, R.1. The BB-27 is the most available variety of this date, identified by the bar in the left obverse field, near the top curl. The 1795 Flowing Hair dollar is popular with both date and type collectors, as the second issue of this two-year design type. The present coin shows moderate wear on the portrait and eagle's breast, but retains much original detail in other areas. The surfaces are a pleasing dove-gray color and a planchet lamination in the right obverse field is the only flaw of note.
