Description:
Amazing Gem 1794 Half Dime, MS66 NGC
1794 H10C MS66 NGC. V-3, R.5. A truly amazing first year Flowing Hair Half Dime, not only because of its lofty grade assignment, but also by virtue of its outstanding eye appeal. This beauty has it all: an abundance of natural luster, extraordinary sharpness of detail for the design type, and satiny surfaces that are free of all but the most trivial of mint-caused planchet voids. A pale golden wash of color heightens the appeal of this spectacular coin, highlighting the peripheral legends and devices in particular. This piece is from a late state of the reverse die, with prominent die cracks from the rim at 7 o'clock, across the eagle's tail, and then to the rim at 5 o'clock, with another crack dropping from the eagle's tailfeathers to the rim at 6 o'clock. This advanced state of the die affords a good look back into time at the early technology of the Mint, when die steel was at a premium and dies were frequently worked until they shattered. As might be expected, this is the second finest example of the date certified by NGC (one specimen is higher) and finer, for instance, than the Eliasberg coin, or any of the other examples of the date that have staked claims to Gem status. (#4250) (NGC ID# 22ZT, PCGS# 4250)
