    1795 Flowing Hair Dollar, AU53
    B-5, BB-27, Sharp Three Leaves Dollar

    1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves, B-5, BB-27, R.1, AU53 NGC. Bowers Die State III. The BB-27 variety is easily attributed by the familiar die line just to the left of the uppermost curl toward the point of the fifth star, three leaves under each wing, seven berries on the left branch and six on the right, and four leaves below the first S of STATES.

    A mix of steel-blue, golden-tan, and gray patination occupies the obverse, while the reverse is mostly a golden-tan. All of the dentils are bold, as are the stars. Good definition is also visible in Liberty's hair, the eagle's wing feathers, and the leaves. The surfaces on both sides are quite smooth. A couple of adjustment marks are visible on Liberty's upper neck, and what appears to be a small lamination is located above the ear. All in all, a pleasing About Uncirculated Flowing Hair dollar with lovely natural patina and sharply defined motifs.
