Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves AU58 NGC. B-1, BB-21, R.2. The famous blundered date, 1795 over 1195. The Two Leaves Reverse dollars were probably struck earlier in the year than the Three Leaves dollars. This nicely centered impression was struck from perfect dies, showing no clash marks, die cracks, or lapping. This lovely near-Mint specimen has frosty luster shining through deep gold, steel, and iridescent toning. Both sides have scattered surface marks consistent with the grade, and show traces of high point wear, also expected at this grade level.
