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 Years earlier, the late Jack Collins spent 25 years studying the 1794 silver dollars, and his work resulted in an unpublished manuscript, 1794 The History and Genealogy of the First United States Dollar.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.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
