Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves XF40 NGC. B-5, BB-27, R.1. Bowers-Borckardt Die State II. Even though the 1795 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves B-5, BB-27 dollar is the most widely available of the early dollars, this piece is in a finer numerical grade than the average certified example, a VF30. Attractive coloration on each side includes steel-gray predominating with olive-green and pinkish accents. A loupe reveals a small patch of pinscratches in the left obverse field, along with field roughness on the lower reverse around the N in UNITED.
