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

1797 H10C 15 Stars AU58 PCGS. V-2, LM-1, R.3. This is the only 1797 half dime variety with fifteen stars, and the most common variety of the year. The central devices are bluntly struck, as always, a result of poor metal flow into the highest portions of the devices opposite each other on the dies. This is an inevitable conflict that has historically plagued coin production of numerous types, where artistic vision must inevitably take a back seat to the physics of striking pressure and metal flow, and designs that look impressive on paper and in sculpted models do not lend themselves to a well-struck final product.
Toned in deep colors approaching charcoal-gray, the detail of this coin away from the centers is full, with a light amount of wear that accounts for the grade. A few marks typical of circulation are visible on the surfaces, and light adjustment marks are visible over the portrait of Liberty's upon magnification. Overall, an exemplary coin, and one that will fit nicely into a type set of early American coinage.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
