1795 $1 Silver Dollar Flowing Hair Three Leaves Reverse B-5 BB-27 PCGS MS62
This is the usual early die state, showing slight obverse die roughness, in addition to a thin line that connects the left stem end to the border. That feature is typically called a die crack, but is more likely a slip of the graver as it seems to be constant through all die states of the B-5, BB-27 marriage.
Delicate adjustment marks appear on the obverse, concentrated at the center, and the adjustments explain the apparent weak strike at the center of the reverse. The adjustment process minutely thins the planchet, reducing the amount of metal available to fill the dies. This satiny Mint State piece is quite attractive with delicate champagne toning over ivory surfaces apparent at the center of each side, all within a lovely frame of blue-steel and iridescent peripheral toning.
Pop 6/14, for all 1795 Three Leaves varieties.
