After October of 1794, the coining of silver dollars was suspended until the following spring. It was not until May that the U. S. Mint had its new and larger press ready for dollar coinage. Since the Mint's figure of 203,033 dollars coined during 1795 does not break down this production into the two different types dated 1795, this number is merely a starting point. In addition, it has been firmly established that dies were utilized until they failed, so that the date of any coin through about the mid-1830s does not guarantee that it was coined during that calendar year. Estimates by numismatists of the number of 1795 Flowing Hair Dollars coined range from 160,295 to as many as 290,000, depending on how one interprets the several deliveries made from coiner to treasurer.
