    Near-Mint 1795 Flowing Hair Dollar, B-1, BB-21
    Last Date of Design, Popular Type Coin

    1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves AU58 NGC. B-1, BB-21, R.2. The Flowing Hair design was retired in 1795, in favor of the draped Bust motif, but the Philadelphia Mint achieved a staggering mintage of 160,295 Flowing Hair silver dollars before the changeover took place. Since 1794 dollars are so rare and expensive, the 1795 enjoys great popularity with type collectors. There are 17 die varieties known for this date and type, with another two varieties of the 1795 Draped Bust design. The present coin is a representative of the BB-21 variety, with the 7 in the date punched over an errant 1. While BB-21 is a reasonably available variety, examples in near-Mint condition are quite scarce.
    The present coin is a sharply struck near-Mint specimen, with only slight wear showing on the eagle's breast and leg. The pleasing surfaces are primarily silver-gray, with strong highlights of gold and steel-blue. A few light adjustment marks are visible on the obverse center.
    From The Dr. and Mrs. Claude Davis Collection.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 24WZ, PCGS# 6853)
