Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Centered XF45 PCGS. B-15, BB-52, R.2. Only 42,738 Draped Bust dollars were coined in 1795, and most examples seen are in lower circulated grades. The issue is quite scarce in XF40 condition, as PCGS has certified only 43 examples at this level, with 84 finer (1/14). Two varieties of Draped Bust dollars are known for the year. The present coin represents the less available BB-52 variety, with the portrait of Liberty well centered, and the highest wave of hair located under the E of LIBERTY. On the reverse, there are six berries on the olive branch, and there is a leaf under the A of STATES. The present coin displays mostly brilliant surfaces, with the faintest trace of pale reddish patina around the margins. This specimen is sharply defined overall, with a little softness on the forefront of the hair curls and the center of the eagle's breast. No mentionable abrasions are present, but a number of shallow adjustment marks are scattered around the reverse rim. Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2010), lot 2146.
