This variety features the 1795 design of the liberty head on the obverse of the 1794 Liberty Cap Large Cent (Penny). Some "head of 1795" varieties feature a circular curl of hair that loops up and around. The "Exact Head of 1795" depicted above does not have this curl as this is the exact design used during the next year in 1795. This is known as the Sheldon S-72 variety.
