Just wondering if anyone has made the foray into trying to assemble a complete set of flowing hair/bust dollars? That would be from 1794 to 1803.

(Note: If the answer is yes and you plan to post pictures, please give a warning that we should have a napkin handy to mop up the drool.)

But the real show will start when Andrew sees this.

Question about the clouds above the stars on the reverse: are they really "clouds?" Any reason for this particular artistic device--does it have any meaning?

The heraldic Eagle device is based on the great seal of the United States which has above the Eagle's head 13 stars surrounded by a circle of clouds with a glory of rays extending out between them. Basically indicating the sky or heavens. There is no glory on the heraldic Eagle dollar but the star cloud still indicates the heavens.

The rendition on the Kennedy half is similar and has the rays.

The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

I don't have any, but I do hope to own one some say. My choice would be a 1795 FH. The obverse portrait captures my attention more. Someday...

So apparently the answer to the OP question is, NO.
