Description

Colorful Choice AU 1797 Half Dime
15 Stars, V-2, LM-1

1797 H10C 15 Stars AU55 NGC. V-2, LM-1, R.3. Ocean-blue, sun-gold, peach, rose-red, and stone-gray embrace this partly lustrous Small Eagle half dime. The radiant surfaces are only minimally abraded, and the eye appeal is formidable for this early type. LM-1 is the sole 15 Stars variety. Apparently, the obverse die was made before Tennessee joined the Union in 1796, or else the engraver simply miscounted the stars. Two 16 Star varieties followed (LM-2 and LM-3) before the Mint decided to return to 13 Stars (for the original 13 Colonies) instead of further crowding the small diameter half dime with star punches.
From The Classic Collection.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
