1795 $1 Dollar Flowing Hair 3 Leaves PCGS AU53 (CAC)
No question this is a seriously choice AU specimen. There is not much keeping it from AU55!
Exceptionally clean surfaces are totally unmolested and even using a strong glass we cannot find and marks worthy of mention. Both sides have an essentially full satin, frosty mint luster which is clear to see. Dove and olive patina blend together with accents of russet-tan and clear gold by the rims attesting to the originality of the surfaces. The reversed has some pale navy in the centers. All the devices are crisply defined, with Liberty’s hair tresses fully and deeply embossed, and there is just the slightest hint of weakness at the central reverse. The eye appeal is fantastic!
PCGS 35, NGC 12, CAC 5. The last example (NOT his coin) to sell at auction brought $34,875.00 05/2021. These do NOT come around any more in ANY grade of AU-let alone one that is CAC. Opportunity knocks loud here!
