1795/1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-112, T-20. Rarity-4. Recut Date, Two Leaves. AU-55 (PCGS).This is an exceptionally well preserved and attractive example of the popular 1795 Recut Date, Two Leaves <em>Guide Book</em> variety. Sharply defined overall, border denticulation is even around both sides with most of Libertys hair strands and the eagles feathers particularly crisp. Brilliant apart from wisps of pale reddish-gold iridescence that are largely confined to the reverse, this is a lovely Choice AU that would do well in an advanced type or variety set. Faint planchet drift marks are noted for both sides, a minor planchet flaw at the upper right obverse and lower right reverse borders is also as made. Tompkins Die Stage 3-4/1. The obverse is lightly cracked from stars 3 to 8, the letters TY in LIBERTY to star 9, but the prominent central crack does not extend below the centering dot.<p>Overton-112 represents the second and final use of the popular Recut Date obverse die of the 1795 Flowing Hair half dollar, here paired with a Two Leaves reverse die. This variety is not rare in an absolute sense, but it enjoys strong demand from specialists at all levels of preservation. In Choice AU, the present example is tied for CC#4 and is sure see spirited bidding at auction.From the E. Horatio Morgan Collection.
