Lot Description
1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off Center AU53 NGC. B-14, BB-51, R.2. As the name implies this is an easily recognized variety, showing the entire profile of Liberty shifted noticeably left (viewer's left, right in the die) so that star 1 butts up against the lowest hair curl, and the right (facing) obverse field is more empty than usually seen. The upper hair ribbon nearly touches stars 5 and 6. This lightly circulated coin boasts a modicum of luster remaining over surfaces that otherwise show a blend of olive-gray prevailing on each side. Scattered marks are of the light and undistracting sort. An appealing example of this relatively available early Draped Bust, Small Eagle type. From The William Jacob Collection, Part II.
