1795 B.4 (R-3). Two Leaves Below Each Wing. This obverse die is easily recognized by the position...1795 B.4 (R-3). Two Leaves Below Each Wing. This obverse die is easily recognized by the position of the fifteenth star relative to the truncation of Liberty's bust. There is no other obverse die of this date whereupon this last star is completely below the bust. Choice About Uncirculated and just on the very cusp of a full Mint State distinction. In fact, this splendid coin offers a visual presentation that is far superior to most Flowing Hair Silver Dollars that are technically Uncirculated. A full measure of velvet-frosty bloom is embellished by handsome overlying shades of russet, lavender-gray, and subtle golden toning. The strike is wonderfully bold for a coin of this design, and the surfaces are free of any defect that requires even the slightest mention. Close examination uncovers only a trace of inconsequential obverse adjustment beneath the toning, however this in no way impedes the beauty of this jewel. We are completely confident that this exceptional coin is well within the condition census for this die variety!
