1795 Capped Bust Right Eagle. BD-1, HBCC-3169, Taraszka-1. Rarity-3+. 13 Leaves. VF-35 (PCGS). This is a very appealing piece that is sure to appeal to a wide variety of collectors, but will most likely sell to a gold type collector seeking an example of the Capped Bust Right Eagle. Both sides are richly toned in dominant khaki-gold patina, the more protected areas around the devices further adorned with vivid copper-rose iridescence that provides a wonderful "look" to the surfaces. Wear is relatively light, and there seems to be enough detail remaining to suggest an EF grade. There are no other significant abrasions save for what appears to be a recent scratch at the lower-right obverse border that, due to its location, does not overly detract. Worthy of a solid bid!
