1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-125, T-13. Rarity-4. Two Leaves. AU-53 (PCGS).This is an impressive Flowing Hair half dollar irrespective of date or die marriage that will appeal to both high grade type collectors and variety specialists. The strike is expertly centered and suitably bold on both sides, most design elements exhibiting sharp to full detail. Adjustment marks (as made) along the obverse border from 3 oclock to 8:30 have resulted in minor softness to many of the stars and some of the adjacent denticles in that area, but to no great detriment to the coins in hand appearance. Hard and satiny with ample luster remaining, the surfaces are further enhanced by an overlay of warm, blended silver-olive and pale lilac patina. Tompkins Die Stage 2/1.<p>The 1795 Overton-125 represents the only use of this reverse die in the Flowing Hair half dollar series, the variety readily attributable by a couple of short, sharp die lines from the right (facing) ribbon end. Closer inspection of high grade examples, as here, will also reveal a lighter die line within the feathers at the top of the eagles left wing. A readily obtainable die marriage by Flowing Hair half dollar standards, a number of Mint State coins make up the Condition Census. Such pieces are rare when viewed in the wider context of U.S. numismatics, as are About Uncirculated survivors, and coins in both categories enjoy equally strong demand among advanced collectors.From the E. Horatio Morgan Collection.
