Description

1795 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar. B-1, BB-21. Rarity-2. Two Leaves. AU-55 (PCGS).

Lovely EF 1795 Two Leaves Dollar

This is a splendid type or variety coin with attractive mint flash in the fields. Both sides are toned with bright orange-russet with teal and blue accents around the rims. The quality is remarkable for an early silver dollar, as the rims, fields and devices are minimally disturbed by handling or circulation, much finer than commonly seen. Furthermore, there are no adjustments or other detracting qualities. A die pairing which is available in lower grades, but seldom encountered this well preserved.

Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers
I view this coin as ideal for the variety collector as it is not a rarity or, similarly, ideal for anyone who is forming a high level type set of American coinage.

PCGS#: 6853

Pedigree: From the Freedom Collection.
