    1795 Flowing Hair Dollar, AU55
    Three Leaves, B-5, BB-27

    1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves, B-5, BB-27, R.1, AU55 PCGS. Bowers Die State II. Experienced early dollar collectors can attribute BB-27 at a glance, by the bold, narrow die line behind the uppermost neck curl. This is an impressive early silver type coin that exhibits substantial golden-brown luster within the wings, wreath, and letters. The obverse also has its share of remaining luster, toned in lilac shades. Minor vertical adjustment marks, as made, are on the central obverse, but post-strike detractions are refreshingly few. The typical Flowing Hair dollar grades VF, and examples of the present quality are highly desirable.
    From The Gibney Family Collection.
