Ron Guth: 1795 Flowing Hair Silver Dollars are known in two different major varieties: 2 Leaves and 3 Leaves.  To determine the variety, simply look at the leaf clusters beneath the eagle's wings -- the clusters will contain either two or three leaves.

In terms of relative rarity, the 2 Leaves variety is approximately three times as rare as the 3 Leaves variety.  Mint State examples of both major varieties are rare and valuable.  Surprisingly, the PCGS Condition Census is comprised entirely PCGS MS64 and better examples.  The best examples are a pair of PCGS MS65s
