1795 $1 Flowing Hair, Two Leaves, Silver Plug, B-3, BB-11, R.5, XF40 PCGS. BB-11 is a much better die variety among Flowing Hair dollars. It can be attributed by its unique berry count, eight on each half of the wreath. About half the surviving examples were struck with a silver plug placed over the center of the planchet; the purpose was to bring the coin up to a proper weight. By mid-1795, the practice had been abandoned, since numerous die marriages of 1795 dollars lack examples with a silver plug. On the present coin, the plug is apparent as a partial circle at both centers, somewhat irregular on the obverse near its 5 o'clock border. The cream-gray surfaces are attractive and show only infrequent minor signs of contact. BB-11 Silver Plug Population: 1 in 40, 1 finer (3/21). HID06601242017
