    1795 Draped Bust Dollar, VF25
    B-14, BB-51, Off-Center Portrait

    1795 $1 Draped Bust, Off-Center, B-14, BB-51, R.2, VF25 PCGS. Bowers Die State 1. Silver-gray surfaces deepen slightly around the raised devices of this BB-51 example, representing the Mint's first attempt to adapt Robert Scot's Draped Bust design to the silver dollar format. Although Liberty's portrait was placed too far left in the field (a situation soon corrected), there were few other problems with the new design. This is a solid midgrade coin shows only microscopic abrasions and tiny nicks. A few Mint-made adjustment marks sit on the rim outside of stars 12 and 13, while a shallow obverse rim bump at 8 o'clock is the only other mark of note. All else is sharp and pleasing for the assigned grade.
