Description

Exemplary Near-Mint 1797 Half Dime, 15 Stars, V-2

1797 H10C 15 Stars AU58 PCGS. V-2, LM-1, R.3. 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 resulting from raised devices located opposite each other. This is an inevitable conflict that has historically plagued coin production in 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 coating of wear that accounts for the grade. A few marks typical of circulation are visible on the surfaces, with light adjustment marks visible at Liberty's bust 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)
