Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center AU55 PCGS. B-14, BB-51, R.2. Gilbert Stuart reportedly created the design for the Draped Bust obverse, with dies most likely engraved by Robert Scot. Two obverse dies were created, differing in the centering of Liberty relative to the stars and LIBERTY. This example is a splendid representative with sharp design elements, especially on the obverse. The surfaces have pewter-gray color with subdued gold toning on both sides. Considerable luster remains evident. Minor planchet roughness is visible at the upper left part of the obverse, and both sides have the usual quota of tiny handling marks. The reverse has light adjustment marks along the border, and at the center. Population: 9 in 55, 16 finer (10/12). Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2006), lot 2365. From The Presidential Collection.
