|The Flowing Hair Silver Dollars of 1794 and 1795 were the first silver dollars issued by the United States. With the 1794 dated example being many times more rare and expensive, the 1795 dated examples are extremely popular type coins amongst collectors wishing to own an example of America’s first silver dollar. There are two major types of 1795 silver dollars, the 2 Leaves and the 3 Leaves varieties. According to PCGS CoinFacts, the 2 Leaves variety is approximately three times as rare as the 3 Leaves variety. This example of the 1795 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar 2 Leaves variety has been graded VF20 by PCGS. The coin has wonderful eye appeal for the grade and is free of any major issues which are often found on early silver dollars. The coin is a very original looking medium to dark grey color which is somewhat darker around the rims, further adding to the attractiveness of the piece. Although the coin has moderate wear, as the grade suggests, the piece shows all of the primary features of the coin in excellent detail. An attractive and problem free example of the Flowing Hair Silver Dollar.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
