    1795 B-5, BB-27 Dollar, MS62
    Three Leaves Reverse

    1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves MS62 NGC. B-5, BB-27, R.1. This is the plentiful variety with a prominent diagonal bar in the upper left obverse field, apparently in an early die state with no lapping or clash marks evident. Light flowlines are evident from most star points to the border, and microscopic die rust is visible near the date. The reverse has three delicate die cracks that are likely only visible on high grade pieces. A prominent flowline from the left stem end has been described as a die crack in past literature.
    A lovely Mint State specimen, this Flowing Hair dollar has full satin luster on both sides with faint adjustment marks at the center and right side of the reverse. Those adjustment marks cause slight weakness at the center of the reverse on this otherwise boldly defined and nicely centered specimen. The lightly toned obverse shows hints of reddish-gold and powder-blue toning over the silver-gray surface while the reverse has a dusting of gold and iridescent toning over its similar silver-gray surface. Trivial surface marks are mostly visible in the open fields of the obverse and less so on the reverse, but there are no individually significant marks on either side. This is a highly attractive Flowing Hair dollar from the second and final year of the design, representing the only issue that is occasionally available in Mint State grades. Census: 13 in 62, 26 finer (11/12).(Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 24WZ, PCGS# 6852)

    Weight: 26.96 grams
