Flowing Hair or “Flow Hair” early silver dollars are some of the rarest and most popular and historically significant rarities one could own. In 1794, the first of two issue years, the Mint struck only about 2,000 coins from a single pair of dies. Because some coins were apparently weakly struck and subsequently rejected, the actual mintage is believed to be 1,758. The entire production occurred on one single day, October 15th. Estimates are that a mere 130 coins in all grades have survived. Production of the halves continued in 1795 with more than 160,000 coins minted. Both the 1794 and 1795 Early Flowing Hair Dollars make great acquisitions in any grade.
