1795 3 Leaves (B-5, BB-27 R.1) NGC AU details/improperly cleaned/obverse damage. 1795 3 Leaves (B-5, BB-27 R.1) NGC AU details/improperly cleaned/obverse damage.
Lot Title: 1795 3 Leaves (B-5, BB-27 R.1) NGC AU details/improperly cleaned/obverse damage.
Description: NGC's disclaimers are curious in calling attention to an improper cleaning and "obv damage". In fact, the obverse appears to have no more damage than such a large coin would expect to sustain from contact with other coins (and items in a 1795 pocket). That being said, the reverse has seen some sort of unknown repair in the area of TES and the field below, with grainy texture that extends all the way up to the rim. Excessive artificial patina may have been employed to disguise this defect, along with the "cleaning" that NGC calls attention to. After all is said and done, considerable sharp details lurk beneath all these caveats that take more time to discuss than does the simple details grade of AU-50. B-5 is of course the most common 1795 dollar by far, and many bidders will delight in the opportunity to find one with this much detail at a relative bargain.
Low Estimate: $5,500.00

755The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$1,450.00
1795 (B-5, BB-27) NGC F details/repaired.
Marshmallow Collection. This is a tough call, as the thick, dense oil-slick substance coating the surface can be assumed to be hiding "something", though we cannot see just what. The reverse...

1795 (B-1, BB-21) NGC VF details/bent.
Marshmallow Collection. NGC declares the coin "bent", and if true, it apparently has had no impact on the normal wear pattern. The coin is likely a prime candidate for being straightened, if...
758The Collectors' Auction 2013 on 10/18/2013$5,750.00
1795 (B-7, BB-18) NGC AU details/repaired.
Marshmallow Collection. Stunning sharpness (for the type) belies underlying problems that may include overall smoothing of the surface, as there appears to be no flowline luster at all to accommodate...
607The Midwest Winter Sale 2008 on 02/08/2008$1,000.00
1795 (B-1) Flowing Hair dollar, F-12, plugged
An exceptionally well executed plug of a hole at the top of the obverse is further camouflaged by extensive tooling and repair of the entire coin. Subsequent patination lends a bit of appeal, but...
608The Midwest Winter Sale 2008 on 02/08/2008$3,700.00
1795 Flowing Hair silver dollar, ANACS VF-30
A reasonably original appearance dominates this large, early type coin. Although details seem a bit bolder on the reverse, that is partly because B-5 is one of those varieties characterized by...
609The Midwest Winter Sale 2008 on 02/08/2008$7,750.00
1795 (B-14 "off center bust") Flowing Hair dollar, ANACS XF-45
Two die marriages, B-14 and B-15, of the 1795 Draped Bust silver dollar are known. One features a centered portrait on the obverse, and the other displays Liberty's portrait shifted a bit to the left...
610The Midwest Winter Sale 2008 on 02/08/2008$11,750.00
1795 Flowing Hair silver dollar, NGC XF-45
Faint hints of lilac and battleship-grey overtones enrich this splendidly detailed coin, providing a level of eye appeal seldom found for early dollars. Remarkably free of rim dings or other...
661The Collectors' Auction 2007 on 10/19/2007$1,150.00
1795 B-1 ANACS F-12 Details, Repaired-Whizzed.
Several disclaimers by ANACS accurately and sufficiently describe the way this Flowing Hair dollar has been processed. A hole through the center entailed considerable effort to repair. It is...
662The Collectors' Auction 2007 on 10/19/2007$22,750.00
1795 B-1 NGC AU-55.
Scarcely any wear is actually visible except at the highest points, where the expected rub can be found with prudent examination. Nonetheless, neither side produces much cartwheel effect beneath the...

1795 NCS VF Details Repaired.
We had to look at this coin for a little while before we could locate the repair. The repair is under Liberty's chin, but it is very difficult to see. This early date dollar has VF+ details, and is...
