Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Silver Plug -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. VG. B-1, BB-21, R.2. Rarity-2 for the BB-21 variety, but much rarer with the visible Silver Plug at the center. This example is best displayed reverse-up, where the misshapen circle-outline from a silver plug is readily seen, inserted by the Mint prior to striking, most likely as a means to correct an underweight planchet. This well-worn example is bright from a past cleaning. The margins display remnants of cerulean-blue and tan toning on the obverse and pale gold-gray on the reverse. Despite the old cleaning, this is a wonderful opportunity for any collector seeking a silver-plug Flowing Hair dollar.
