$1 1795 3 LEAVES. PCGS MS64 CAC. Ex Eliasberg. Legend Rare Coin Auctions is proud to offer this remarkable quality, near-GEM B-5, BB-27 1795 dollar that is one of the absolute FINEST KNOWN of the variety and the date! A treasure of early federal issue coinage. Boasting bold, superb visual and technical numismatic quality as well as the most famous provenance in American numismatics: Louis Eliasberg. In terms of every characteristic that novices and advanced collectors alike desire, this coin has them all in spades! From luster, to strike, to its complete originality, this coin has it all! A vivacious satiny luster blooms in the fields throughout both the obverse and reverse. Every detail is essentially full and crisp, including the hair strands, Liberty's eye, and the stars. Likewise, the only area with any kind of striking weakness is at the central reverse on the eagle's chest feathers, typical for the B-5 die marriage. Both sides possess the classic "Eliasberg" look with a soft pewter-silver that offers hints of gold, rose, lilac, tan, and pale olive patina. Strong glass reveals a few tiny, scattered ticks, none of which are readily evident to the naked eye, and serve to forever help identify this coin as lot 2172 in the April 1997 sale of the Eliasberg Collection. This important early dollar traces its provenance to the E.W. Ropes Collection, sold by New York Coin & Stamp Co., February 1899 to the J.M. Clapp Collection. John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate, via Stack's in 1942, to Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, April 1997, lot 2172. This coin has appeared most recently in March 2007. PCGS 7, NGC 9, CAC 3. NOTE: NO CAC-approved examples have ever sold in auction! The last non-CAC PCGS example sold four and a half years ago, realizing $258,500 and it did not have the outstanding eye appeal of this AMAZING Flowing Hair dollar from the Eliasberg Collection. If you are putting together a high end type set and are looking for one of the best 1795
