Exceptional EF 1795 Flowing Hair Dollar

About as nice as you will ever see for the date and grade combination, the present specimen is soft pewter-gray in appearance with a touch of pale champagne-gold throughout. Retained luster and mint bloom can be seen in the deeply recessed design areas. The devices are strong on this evenly circulated specimen, and other than some tiny marks that come into view under low magnification, the naked eye is spared any marks other than some reverse planchet adjustment marks at the rim lightly through portions of the legend in several places -- they form little or no distraction but instead provide an insight into 18th-century minting technology. We seldom see such fine early dollars, as many of the specimens available to today's numismatists have been cleaned or otherwise enhanced; when we see one as nice as this we like to "crow" about it. Choice for the grade and practically guaranteed to realize a premium price when it crosses the auction  block.
