Delightful 1797 Half Dime, AU58
15 Stars, V-2, LM-1

1797 H10C 15 Stars AU58 NGC. Ex: Price. The Logan-McCloskey plate coin. V-2, LM-1, R.3. This variety features 15 stars on the obverse, as with the previous three years. Later in the year another star was added to represent Tennessee's statehood, but the Mint soon realized that it could not add a new star for each state without the design appearing very cluttered. Before the year was over three distinct obverses had been used: the first with 15 stars, the next with 16, and the last with 13. The number of stars would remain at 13 until the 1837 No Stars issue.
Mottled steel-blue, hazel, and silver-gray toning envelops both sides of this lustrous specimen. The centers are softly struck, as often the case, but all of the details are clearly defined. The reverse has light clash marks and a hint of porosity near the rims. An excellent example of this popular Guide Book variety. Census: 18 in 58, 40 finer (6/09).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
