    1795 Flowing Hair Dollar, VF30
    B-7, BB-18, Ex: Hesselgesser
    Well-Defined Silver Plug

    1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves, Silver Plug, B-7, BB-18, R.3, VF30 PCGS. Ex: Hesselgesser. Bowers Die State I. BB-18 is one of the more often-seen varieties with a silver plug, although such coins are nonetheless rare in all grades. This example is one of seven BB-18 coins attributed by die variety at PCGS with the silver plug. Numerous other, unattributed silver plug dollars are known, and some are likely BB-18 representatives. This example is well-detailed for the grade and shows mostly smooth surfaces. A loupe reveals a faint pinscratch in the left obverse field that resembles an M. The coin is evenly struck and displays lavender-gray patina with peach accents. The silver plug is plainly outlined on the obverse but faint on the reverse. This piece is among the finest silver plug BB-18 coins that we have seen in recent years. (NGC ID# 24WZ, Variety PCGS# 39993, Base PCGS# 6854)
