Lot 5017

1795 B-12, BB-26 Flowing Hair 3 Leaves Rarity 5. PCGS graded VF-25. Subset of PCGS # 6852. In a new secure plus holder. EDS. Previously graded VF30 by NGC. A more than moderately smooth and attractive specimen light gray surfaces and a confident, no-compromises look of careful preservation by its former owners. Everything you would want from the grade, and probably then some.

1795 BB-26 is believed to exist to the extent of 31 to 75 coins, most of which are in lower grades up to and including VF. Fine grade seems to be about par for this variety, an issue which must have circulated very extensively. The variety is very rare EF and unknown in Mint State. Any specimen which grades EF or higher is Condition Census level. The absence of the obverse die crack is quite desirable. This reverse is also used in the BB-27 and BB-25 (PCGS # 39976) .
Estimated Value $7,000-UP.
Ex: Jules Reiver Collection; The Dr. Hesselgesser Collection.

Realized $6,900
