Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Silver Plug VF30 NGC. CAC. B-1, BB-21, R.2. Two Leaves Reverse. While many silver-plugged 1795 dollars have small or hard-to-see plugs, this piece not only has the plug more visible on the obverse, where it can be displayed easily, but covering a large and well-defined area with clear separation of the hair detail on the plug's left curve. Otherwise this is a generally pleasing midrange example of the most available 1795 Two Leaves die pair, medium-gray with an orange-cast and scattered abrasions on the interiors. The rims have taken a few hits, such as the depression near star 8 on the obverse and a sizable nick between the E and R of AMERICA.
