Historic And Well Detailed 1794 Dollar1794 $1--XF Details, Obverse Repaired--NCS. We are not aware of another opportunity collectors have ever had to choose between so many 1794 dollars. As a rule, silver dollars from this year are rarely offered at public auction, and the demand for these coins far outdistances the supply. This particular coin shows evidence of minor repair in the upper obverse field, and yet numismatists for many generations have been willing to accept or overlook this defect as this piece has been in major collections since the 1870s. The surfaces are medium gray with much lighter accents over the highpoints on the reverse. Weakly struck on the stars on the obverse stars, as always, with the left side of the reverse also weak from having been struck from misaligned dies. The only mentionable surface defect is a diagonal scratch across the eagle's neck that continues into the field below. The repair was done on the obverse in the field at 1 o'clock and it affects a couple of stars. Apparently this area was smoothed in order to lessen the effect of a deep planchet flaw; however, the flaw is still obvious. A well detailed and historic 1794 dollar.
