Lot Description
1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Silver Plug Fine 12 PCGS. CAC. B-1, BB-21, R.2. An available variety for an early dollar, this piece is nonetheless quite elusive as one of the silver plugged coins. On the obverse, a single point of star 1 pierces the lowest hair curl. The Two Leaves reverse shows the berries arranged 9x10, with a single berry under the right side of the first A in AMERICA. The silver plug is scarcely seen on the obverse but quite plain on the reverse, with an obvious arc of a slightly different color under the eagle's beak and left of the right (facing) wing the most obvious telltale. Both sides show wear consistent with the grade, but there are no obvious abrasions. The surfaces are attractively toned in shades of pinkish-gray with pale blue-green accents.
