1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-108a, T-17. Rarity-4. Two Leaves. MS-63 (PCGS).This condition rarity was discovered in Europe in 2013 from an old time collection, where it had no doubt resided since soon after it was struck. The obverse and reverse show considerable luster and pale silver-gray to gold patina. It is remarkable to see an early half dollar of this degree of preservation, as Liberty has full curl separation and the eagles breast actually shows several of the minute breast feathers. Examination with a strong loupe shows the delicate marks within the feathers of the wings where the die was originally brushed up to remove any burrs or similar fragments from the die engraving process. Such fine parallel lines are always faint and shallow, and soon wear away after the briefest circulation. These are known on many early dies from this era, but only seen on the few high grade coins that exist today. No adjustment marks are present, and there are no handling issues here, just a few small nicks when closely examined. This is a later state of the 1795 O-108 dies with a few shallow and thin cracks and a small edge chip at the base of the reverse where part of the dentils have broken off the die, possibly from contact with some form of early collar.<p>Not only is this one of the finest half dollars to exist of the Flowing Hair type, but is it certainly the finest known of the variety as noted in the Autumn 2023 edition of the Herrman reference. In fact, there are only two other Mint State coins traced for the 1795 O-108 dies: the Newman specimen (O-108a) in NGC MS-63 auctioned by Heritage in November 2013; and the coin (O-108a) that was last auctioned by Superior in 1988 in their Bernard Shore Collection, where it was noted to have a circular defect on the reverse. The present specimen is a simply incredible coin that was numismatically unknown until a decade ago and, here, is making only its second auction appearance in the modern market, if not ever.PCGS# 6052. NGC ID: 2.40E+08.Discovered in an old time collection in Europe, 2013; our Chicago ANA Auction of August 2013, lot 4099, as NGC MS-63+.
