Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Centered AU50 PCGS. CAC. B-15, BB-52, R.2. Ex: Hesselgesser. Bowers-Borckardt Die State V. Dappled autumn-gold and forest-green toning embraces this lightly circulated and minimally abraded first-year Draped Bust dollar. Luster outlines design elements. Since even die engravers learn from mistakes, BB-52, with Liberty's bust balanced on the obverse, was probably struck after BB-51, which had the portrait entered too far to the left. In recent years, Dr. Hesselgesser has formed the best known high grade collection of Bolender die varieties. Ex: Dr. Hesselgesser Collection (Ira & Larry Goldberg, 2/2009), lot 1047.
