Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves AU55 NGC. B-1, BB-21, R.2. Silver dollars were produced with two different reverse dies in 1795, the earlier Flowing Hair reverse that accounts for the bulk of the mintage, and the later Draped Bust motif that is relatively scarce. The present coin is a Flowing Hair example, representing the available BB-21 variety. The BB-21 is recognized by the presence of an underdigit 1 below the 7 in the date. This coin is an attractive Choice AU specimen, with well-detailed design elements and pleasing dove-gray patina. A scattering of minor abrasions is evident on both sides, and a couple of small rim bruises show on the obverse at 3 o'clock and the reverse at 6 o'clock. From The Oliver Collection.
