1795 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. B-15, BB-52. Rarity-2. Bowers Die State IV. Centered Bust. AU-55 (PCGS). A coin that holds tremendous appeal for the high grade type collector, this first year Draped Bust silver dollar offers first and foremost overall sharp definition to the devices. The strike is expertly centered and otherwise very well executed, and rub is minimal and largely confined to the highpoints in and around the centers. None of the wispy abrasions are worthy of undue attention, and concentrations of light adjustment marks along the right reverse border and over the clouds and adjacent portions of the wreath are as struck. Attractively toned, iridescent silver-apricot patina is most vivid when observed with the aid of a good light source, which also also call forth considerable vibrancy to satiny mint luster. A very nice piece.
