Description:
Choice 1794 Half Dime, Rare Valentine-2 Die Marriage
1794 H10C MS64 PCGS. V-2, LM-2, R.5. A leaf pair below the second S in STATES confirms the reverse die, while a pair of hair curls bookends, but does not touch, the second star. Richly toned in dove-gray and dusky apricot colors. A crisply struck near-Gem that has bold hair locks and only slight softness on the feathers of the eagle's breast. A mint-made thin planchet streak below the eagle's right (facing) wing and a faint pinscratch on Liberty's chin do not appear to limit the grade. A late die state of the variety, since the horizontal die crack between the eagle's legs and the thin crack from the denticles left of the M in AMERICA are both present. The Flowing Hair Half Dime type was only produced for two years, and the initial 1794 issue is much scarcer than its 1795 counterpart. Four die marriages are known for the 1794 issue, and although all are elusive, only V-1 exceeds Valentine-2 in rarity.(#4250) (NGC ID# 22ZT, PCGS# 4250)
