Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center--Improperly Cleaned--NGC. AU Details. B-14, BB-51, R.2. The bust is off-center left in the die, leaving the highest wave of hair under the B in LIBERTY rather than the E as usually seen on most early dollars. As a result, the right field is quite broad and open, a visual effect easily spotted after one observes a few examples. This is a silvery piece that is a bit too bright, indicative of a cleaning, but much appeal is present. Some heavy adjustment marks are confined to the immediate center of the obverse.
