    1795 B-5, BB-27 Dollar, AU53
    Apparent Late Die State

    1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Three Leaves, B-5, BB-27, R.1, AU53 PCGS. The plentiful variety with the bar behind Liberty's upper hair curl, the B-5, BB-27 dollar represents about one-third of all known 1795 Flowing Hair silver dollars. The B-1, BB-21 Blundered Date variety is the second most common, and the two varieties might encompass half of all known 1795 Flowing Hairs. The other half includes 17 different die marriages. This example has the upper reverse die crack more prominently visible, suggesting a late die state. However, the obverse and reverse die rust is less evident. The conclusion is lapped dies. Natural light gray surfaces exhibit delicate steel-blue and gold toning on the obverse, and stronger gold and teal patina on the reverse.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
