Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center VF25 PCGS. B-14, BB-51, R.2. Misattributed on the PCGS holder as "Center Bust." Actually, this is the slightly earlier variety with the bust shifted too far to the left. The high wave of Liberty's hair curl is directly under the B in LIBERTY, and the first star touches Liberty's second lower hair curl at two points. This example has an even layer of deep olive-brown-gray toning across both obverse and reverse. The remaining design details are more than adequate, for the VF25 grade level. Obverse stars 8 through 14 are flat in the centers, but most other areas of the design are sharply detailed. The attractive, original surfaces are very smooth and free of any noticeable marks or abrasions.
