Sharp 1795 B-9, BB-13 Dollar, AU Details

1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves--Improperly Cleaned--NCS. AU Details. B-9, BB-13, R.4. Die State I. While the surfaces of this example are slightly roughened from the condition of the original die, there is no evidence of clash marks or cracks on either side of this early state example.
The existing details suggests a strong AU coin with evidence of remaining luster on both sides, especially in the protected areas. In addition to light evidence of cleaning on this ivory and steel toned piece, the upper obverse rim has minor imperfections.
The B-9 die combination is scarcer than the Bowers estimate of 300 to 500 coins, but more plentiful than Bolender's estimate of 31 to 75 coins. This piece, despite minor challenges, still qualifies as one of the better known specimens of the die marriage.
Stack's described this coin in their catalog as:
"1795. B.9. Choice About Uncirculated, virtually Mint State. An outstanding specimen of this issue and one securely lodged high in the Condition Census. In the recent Bowers roster of high grade examples this coin would place second. Both sides are deeply and evenly toned in a medium shade of silver gray. There are very faint traces of original mint lustre that can be seen around the rims. The roughness in the field behind Liberty's head appears to be typical of the variety in the pre-clash state of the obverse. The reverse planchet surface, which appears to be somewhat striated, shows how difficult it was for the early Mint to prepare its planchets for the denomination."
Ex: Stack's (3/1999), lot 802.
