Description & Analysis

Martin A. Logies compiled a significant study of 1794 silver dollars, The Flowing Hair Silver Dollars of 1794, published in 2004. He recorded provenance details and additional information about 125 different specimens, with nearly all illustrated. Years earlier, the late Jack Collins spent 25 years studying the 1794 silver dollars, and his work resulted in an unpublished manuscript, 1794 The History and Genealogy of the First United States Dollar. Only Collins' untimely death prevented publication of the nearly complete manuscript. Collins recorded details of about 117 different 1794 silver dollars in his manuscript.

Combining the two references and adding a couple of specimens, we now have an accounting of 132 different 1794 dollars, including this coin, which we consider the 10th finest.
