1795 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar. B-1, BB-21. Rarity-2. Two Leaves. Fine-12 (NGC). Steel-gray with blue, gold, rose and violet iridescent highlights. The reverse -- in particular -- displays excellent centering, indicating that the reverse die was probably mounted in the anvil position of the coining press. Faint Mint-caused adjustment marks can be seen at the obverse rim at 8 o'clock and 12 o'clock. Nice eye appeal for the assigned grade.
