Description

Choice AU 1796/5 Half Dime, V-2, LM-2

1796/5 H10C AU55 PCGS. V-2, LM-2, R.6. The 1796/5 is a rare variety that is usually found in well-worn condition, although some of the certified examples are high-grade. Remains of a previous 5 are quite plain under the subsequent 6. The B in LIBERTY is defective, made from the same punch that was used to create the LIKERTY variety. The 1796/5 is also a well-known and popular Guide Book variant. The present Choice AU example is certified in an old small-size green-label holder. The surfaces still retain much luster and have alluring silver-gold coloration on each side. A wispy, arcing scrape appears below LIBERTY and a couple of stars, but otherwise there is no significant contact. Some faint adjustment marks appear on the lower reverse, and the usual die crack runs from the rim to T3 through the eagle's breast, the clouds, the right ribbon tip, and back to the rim.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 22ZY, PCGS# 4255)
