Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center AU50 NGC. B-14, BB-51, R.2. Perfect dies, as always. The Uncentered Bust variety with Liberty crowding the stars along the left obverse border. The position of Liberty on the obverse is diagnostic for each of the two known 1795 Draped Bust varieties. Both varieties are seen on a regular basis, about 60% for this variety and 40% for the other. The devices of this pleasing Draped Bust dollar are lightly worn, with smooth gray surfaces that host light iridescence. The surfaces are attractive, with only a few minor blemishes on Liberty's profile.
