A first-of-its-kind, recently discovered 1795 U.S. Flowing Hair silver dollar (http://coins.ha.com/itm/early-dollars/silver-and-related-dollars/1795-1-flowing-hair-three-leaves-two-mint-silver-plugs-b-5-bb-27-r1-au53-ngc/p/1238-101028.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515) with two separate “plugs” has been authenticated by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (www.NGCcoin.com) and will be a featured highlight of the Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com) Platinum Night auction at the American Numismatic Association 2016 Anaheim World’s Fair of Money, August 10.

“Many 1795 silver dollars, along with a single 1794 dollar and a small number of 1795 half dollars, show evidence of a Mint-inserted plug, apparently to achieve a correct weight for the planchet prior to striking.  Today, for the first time, we have a 1795 Flowing Hair dollar that has two Mint-inserted silver plugs, one at the center of the obverse and the other at the lower reverse,” said Mark Borckardt, Heritage Senior Cataloger.

“Each of the two plugs has a diameter of about 4 millimeters.  The obverse plug is located on Liberty’s neck, tangent to the jaw line which appears through the plug.  The reverse plug is located between the ribbon ends,” he explained.

The coin has been certified and graded NGC AU53 and is designated as 1795 dollar Flowing Hair, Three Leaves variety B-5, BB-27, R-1.

“Most numismatic researchers today agree that silver plugs were added to adjust the weight of the planchets.  While we don’t know the exact process used at the Philadelphia Mint in 1795, we assume an underweight planchet was pierced and a silver pin fastened to the planchet by means of smooth ‘dies’ in a screw press.  Apparently, the first plug on this coin was not enough to bring up the weight to the standard level of 26.96 grams, so a second plug was inserted,” said Borckardt.

The weight of the dual-plugged coin is 26.98 grams.

The consignor of the discovery coin wants to remain anonymous, and no information is available at this time about the coin’s earlier provenance.

“This unique early American coin provides insight into the early years of the United States Mint.  Its discovery 221 years after its production makes us eagerly anticipate what other numismatic treasures are still waiting to be found,” said Borckardt.

Heritage Auctions is the largest auction house founded in the United States and the world’s third largest, with annual sales of more than $900 million, and 950,000+ online bidder members.

We will cover fees (paid by sellers and buyers) in addition to services before sharing some examples from my Proxibid experience–which you can affirm or contest, as always, because your opinions matter at Coin Update.

I always like to share some of the interesting “secret” coins that I buy at shows and I recently realized that it’s been a long time since I’ve written a “Cool Coins” Blog. At the recent Summer 2016 Long Beach show, I purchased a number of special coins which never made it on to my website.

One of my favorite purchases was a stunning 1851-O $20 from an old-time, fresh collection which was sold by Goldberg in their pre-show auction. There were three great Type One double eagles in the sale: a borderline Gem 1850, this 1851-O, and an 1857 in… Full article at the source>

The American Numismatic Association organizes two shows each year: the National Money Show, which occurs in the spring, and the World’s Fair of Money, usually held in the first or second week of August. The annual spring show took place last week in downtown Dallas, Texas. I visited the convention and came away with some thoughts on the event, coin shows in general, and the present market.

This show was not tremendously busy from either a dealer or a public standpoint. While the summer show is considered to be the largest coin show in the world, with dealers flying in from… Full article at the source>

Recently in an estate auction I won more than 50 lots of coins in older green PCGS holders, which traditionally have the allure of being conservatively graded and deserving of upgrades.

For several years now I have been submitting my own coins to the top holdering companies, paying an annual fee for that privilege to PCGS and NGC. (ANACS and ICG do not charge fees; but I seldom submit to them because I have set registries in the other two top companies.)

Only rarely do older numismatic estates come up for auction, and when they do by the major houses such as… Full article at the source>

For better or worse, the current market has come to heavily rely on auction prices to determine the value of a wide range of coins. I am often asked: do auction prices represent wholesale or retail? A one word answer: both.

The coin market is quite possibly the most transparent market there is in any hobby or collectible. PCGS, NGC, and Heritage provide comprehensive databases for nearly any major issue of United States coin, in a variety of grades. In theory, even an unknowledgeable collector now has access to records which only the most sophisticated dealers and collectors could access as… Full article at the source>

1794 was the first year the U.S. minted silver dollars.
