1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-109, T-16. Rarity-4. Two Leaves. EF-40 (PCGS).This ideally centered example exhibits fully, evenly denticulated borders around both sides. All major design elements retain bold EF detail, most of Libertys hair strands sharp even in the presence of a few light adjustment marks (as made) around the ear. Blended pewter and olive-gray patina provides a pleasingly original appearance for surfaces that are uncommonly smooth overall for a lightly circulated early half dollar. A pair of shallow digs in the center of the eagles breast are noted for accuracy. The Overton-109 pairing represents the fist of two uses for this obverse die (per Tompkins, 2015), the second and final use coming in the O-108 marriage. While the former variety is readily obtainable in an absolute sense, at least by the standards of this issue, it is a conditionally challenging variety with the present EF-40 qualifying as Condition Census per the Tompkins listing.
