Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center -- Polished -- NGC Details. AU. B-14, BB-51, R.2. Bowers-Borckardt Die State I. The Draped Bust design was introduced in 1795 and only two die varieties are known for the date and type. This coin represents the Off Center BB-51 variety, with the highest curl of hair under the B in LIBERTY. Almost all original design detail remains intact, but the surfaces have been polished to show an unnaturally bright effect. From The Joan Carroll Collection.
