1795 Flowing Hair $1 3 Leaves
B-5, BB-27, R.1. A monumental specimen for the most advanced collector as so few Flowing Hair silver dollars are truly Mint State today, especially at this high level. The strike is sharp on Liberty's hair curls with full separation on the seldom seen waves above her ear, as well as on the eagle's tiny breast feathers which show details seldom seen as most were not struck up in the first place. The three leaf reverse refers to the number of leaves in the branch below the eagle's wings, some dies have two, others have three as seen here. Colorfully toned with a blend of bright gold and crimson-red with traces of blue, violet, and green as well.

The 1795 Flowing hair dollar represents the final year of a two year type coin. Of course the 1794 is quite rare in all grades and commands a substantial premium for the date. Later in October of 1795, the design was changed to the Draped Bust type and that brought to a close this classic Federal period style. Simply, a stellar example for the connoisseur.
