1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-113a, T-14. Rarity-4. Two Leaves, A/E in STATES. VG-8 (PCGS).Iridescent reddish-apricot highlights blend with dominant pewter gray patina on both sides of this universally bold VG example. All major design elements are boldly outlined and fully appreciable, the denticulation full from a well centered strike. Wispy hairlines and a touch of glossiness to the texture are noted for accuracy, although there are no sizeable or otherwise individually mentionable marks. A popular and readily attributable die marriage of the 1795-dated half dollar issue, Overton-113 is the only variety of the date with the letter A in STATES punched over an erroneous E. This is one of the more frequently encountered die pairings of the issue, which provides many collectors with the opportunity to own a pleasing example of the A/E variety, as here.
