1795 Flowing Hair Dollar. 3 leaves beneath each wing. NGC graded EF-40. Die State III. Delicate greyish-violet toning with traces of some luster within the protected areas. The surface is attractively free of marks and dings, which qualifies it for most collectors' sets in this grade range (unlike so many others which haven't the same overall eye-appeal.) Beneath each wing of the eagle, 3 leaves (a Guide Good variety).
1795 BB-25 is something of an oddity. On the reverse, Die State I has three leaves visible below the first S of STATES. It is believed to be an early state of die, probably with the 4th leaf depression in the die filled with foreign matter. Die State III (this coin) has all four leaves now present! (Also used in its later state to coin BB-26 and BB-27, each of which has four leaves beneath the first S of STATES.).
Estimated Value $8,000 - 9,000.
