very scarce 1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar has wonderfully
original and clean surfaces. The coin is graded VF25
by PCGS. It shows only slight wear on the hair above
Liberty’s forehead and well defined and detailed hair
down her neck. The grade is confirmed by CAC indicating
that it is a premium quality piece and well within
the designated grade range.
The coin is
toned light silver-grey with gunmetal blue and dark
tan in the obverse field and hints of lavender on
the portrait and the eagle. Darker toning outlines
the portrait and most of the eagle and is also prominent
at the coin’s edge.
The coin’s variety
is Overton 104 named for for Al C. Overton who wrote
the book "Early Half Dollar Die Varieties 1794
– 1836". The 104 variety has an R4 Rarity
rating which means that it is very scarce with only
81 to 200 pieces known in all states of preservation.
The CAC population reports are not helpful because
they do not list this variety; however both PCGS and
NGC list many of the 1795 half dollar die varieties
