Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center AU55 NGC. B-14, BB-51, R.2. Two varieties have the Draped Bust centered, or left of center, as on this example. NGC describes the variety as "Draped Bust, Set Left" and PCGS calls it the "Off-Center Bust," the latter term suggesting an error coin. This remarkable Choice AU specimen has exceptional eye appeal. The obverse is fully lustrous and boldly detailed with light gold toning over its satiny silver brilliance, showing myriad vertical dark toning streaks. The reverse has light silver-gray mint brilliance with attractive splashes of light gold. A splendid specimen. Census: 26 in 55, 51 finer (7/12), for both varieties. From The Fred Yee Collection.
