    1795 Draped Bust Dollar, AU53
    Centered Bust, B-15, BB-52

    1795 $1 Draped Bust, Centered, B-15, BB-52, R.2, AU53 NGC. The Draped Bust design replaced the Flowing Hair motif on the dollar late in 1795 when a modest mintage of 42,738 pieces was accomplished. Only two die varieties are known for the date and type. This coin represents the BB-52 variety, with the bust well-centered in the field and the highest wave of hair under the E in LIBERTY. This impressive AU53 example was struck from a late state of the dies, with a large die break in Liberty's hair, near the ribbon and a die crack through ICA in AMERICA. The design elements were strongly impressed and just a trace of wear shows on the high points. The lightly abraded surfaces retain traces of original mint luster, under pleasing shades of lavender-gray toning. Census (for the variety): 2 in 53, 7 finer (12/19). (NGC ID# 24X2, Variety PCGS# 39995, Base PCGS# 6858)
