Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair,3 Leaves Silver Plug Fine 15 NGC. B-7, BB-18, R.3. The outline of the slightly oval-shaped plug is faintly visible at the center of the obverse. This mint-made plug was inserted to bring the piece up to weight specifications, and was briefly mint procedure instead of simply melting the flan and starting again. The dove-gray surfaces are refreshingly unabraded, and protected areas display glimpses of orange toning. A few inconsequential adjustment marks (as produced) are confined to the reverse margin. Our auction records over the past few years confirm that B-1 and B-7 are the usual silver plug varieties, although B-3, B-4, and B-5 have also appeared with mint-issued silver plugs.
