Lot 1145

1795 Draped Bust Dollar. Off-center bust. ANACS graded MS-60. Toned with jet black colors throughout, the centers slightly lighter in color. We note there are central adjustment marks on Liberty, but they are mostly hidden by her hair and the toning. Boldly struck as are most of this variety, with mountainous hair details on Liberty and even full breast feathers on the eagle. We note some faint hairlines in the fields, and a few scattered marks from handling, none of which are warrant description. Rare and desirable in any grade even approaching mint state, this one will certainly attract considerable attention from type collectors.
This is an important type coin, and it is believed that this is one of the two dies that first introduced the draped bust design coupled with the small eagle reverse to the nation in October of 1795. Few are known that even approach mint state, and this is certainly one of the better ones. An important coin for the collector.
Estimated Value $17,000 - 20,000.
