A truly wonderful Flowing Hair dollar. Starting with a full and complete impression from the dies, this coin shows sparkling fields overlaid with lovely silvery gray antique patina, perfectly original and superbly eye-appealing. No distractions or adjustment marks. A great example of our nation’s first dollar design.
*NEW* A wonderful original that starts with a strong and even strike overall, showing strong hair and drapery detail on front and complete wing and shield detailing on the back. Finished with lovely, slightly two-toned silvery gray toning. Completely free of distractions and adjustment marks.
*SOLD - NEW* Wow, this coin is just a stunner. Incredibly flashy Cameo proof-like, bright and brilliant with just a bit of peripheral toning mostly at the bottom left obverse rims. Sharply struck with all design details bold.
*NEW* Although mint state Trade Dollars are a type I always seek, you may have noticed that I have not offered one in 2-3 years. They are generally not appealing, even in MS64 grade. Many have strike issues, particularly on the head and will come with big gashes or unattractive toning. Finally an exception that is premium quality and deserving of a “plus” designation IMO. Very well struck overall on both sides, this example shows minimum contact marks and nothing at all distracting. Very light silvery rose patina overall with light rose and blue interspersed throughout. The surfaces are creamy smooth and the luster is intense. Absolute top of the grade for both technical quality and eye-appeal.
*ON HOLD* Gorgeous Black and White CAMEO with thick, snowy white CAMEO devices contrasting deeply mirrored fields on both sides. Obverse is basically brilliant with light golden peripheries. Reverse shows just a hint of golden patina, slight deeper at the peripheries. Phenomenal Eye-Appeal.
