Sale 34


Lot 1611

1795 Draped Bust Dollar. PCGS graded EF-40. Natural toning on both sides includes some planchet impurity streaking as often seen. Choice, smooth surfaces, equally choice rims, and grand eye appeal for the grade. Pop 22; 52 finer. (PCGS # 96858) .

Master dies, puncheons, or hubs (they have been known under many names over the years) were created for certain elements in the design of the 1795 dollars. For dollars of the period, these punches consisted of major design elements. Punches for the head of Liberty, eagle, and much of the wreath were probably made, with the smaller elements such as berries, stars, date digits and lettering added separately.
Estimated Value $7,000 - 8,000.

 
Realized $7,475
