1795 Flowing Hair 50C PCGS VF25 CAC - $5,900.

This 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 including O-104.
