AU 1796 LIKERTY Half Dime, V-1, LM-1
Popular Guide Book Variety

1796 H10C LIKERTY AU50 PCGS. CAC. V-1, LM-1, R.3. The weak upper and lower serifs of the B in LIBERTY create the illusion of a misspelled legend. This minimally worn charcoal-gray example has a tendency to lighten in color within the protected areas. The strike is particularly well-executed in the centers, including the often-deficient breast feathers of the eagle. A cluster of short hairline scratches is noticed in the right obverse field from one of Liberty's upper curls to an area out from her chin. Any trace of remaining luster is muted by the heavy toning. The 1796 LIKERTY is a popular Guide Book variety from the third year of half dime coinage at the Mint, and the first for the Draped Bust, Small Eagle reverse type.
Ex: St. Louis Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 200, which brought $8,625.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 22ZX, PCGS# 94254)
