Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves AU53 NGC. B-13, BB-24, R.4. Six trailing curls on Liberty, the second from bottom points downward to a space in star 2. A lesser seen die marriage that, according to Bowers, has an approximate population of between 100 and 150 coins. Although most show only modest wear, the B-13 is only rarely found in AU and finer condition. The coin is a bright silver-gray with ample luster in the recesses and no unsightly adjustment marks. The strike is generally sharp, the only exception being occasional blurriness on the reverse denticles. An significant offering for the early dollar specialist.
