Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves, B-1, BB-21, R.2, AU50 PCGS. This die marriage pairs a Head of 1795 obverse (loop at left side of bust truncation, no "pinch" on neck, pointed neck tip) with a Two Leaves reverse that features a delicate wreath with small leaves and large berries arranged nine left, 10 right. This is also the popular obverse commonly called "1795/1195." The design elements are well defined and nicely centered on the planchet. Complete dentilation shows on the obverse and most of the reverse. The pleasing silver-gray patina is slightly deeper in hue on the obverse, where a few minute marks are of little consequence. There are some faint adjustment marks on the lower reverse, also of little import and failing to dampen the viewer's enthusiasm for this little-worn dollar. Ex: Cincinnati CSNS Signature (Heritage, 4/2009), Lot 2532. From The Cathedral West Collection.
