Date – Mint Rarity:
You only have two dates to choose from and neither have mint marks because they were minted at the Philadelphia Mint only. The 1794 appears to be the most rare and is worth the most with values starting at over $1,000, and that’s in the lowest grade. You might find one in damaged condition for a $1,000 but finding them listed for sell is difficult enough.
The 1795 is easier to find and buy, so a good deal on these would be under $1,500 and a great deal on a low grade and damaged coin is $600. A 1795 provides the best opportunity to buy one for your type collection.
You can find the best deal on them at ebay auction, but BIN (Buy It Now) are often to pricey, so be patient and try not to bid to win but bid what you can reasonably pay and not go over what the coin is worth. If you just want a hole filler for your album then you can find the 1795 more readily than the 1794.
