    1795 B-4, BB-14 Dollar, VF25
    Flowing Hair, Two Leaves, Silver Plug

    1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves, Silver Plug, B-4, BB-14, R.3, VF25 NGC. A fairly large silver plug is apparent at both centers. The plug was placed on top of the planchet prior to the strike, to bring a lower-weight planchet up to standard. As of (3/21), NGC has certified just three dollars as BB-14 with a silver plug. This gunmetal-gray, wheat-gold, and cream-gray example is well-defined for the designated grade. An absence of consequential marks further ensures the eye appeal. The story goes that silver plugs on occasional early dollars were undiscovered until a coin dealer, while heating a Flowing Hair specimen on a stove, saw its center pop out of the coin.
