Description:
Significant 1797 V-2, LM-1 Half Dime, 15 Stars, MS62
1797 H10C 15 Stars MS62 NGC. V-2, LM-1, R.3. The 1797 15 Stars variety is considered the first of the 1797 half dimes minted, from a die that remained unused since it was engraved early in the previous year. We can be sure that the die was engraved before Tennessee was admitted as the 16th state on June 1, 1796. Since there is no evidence of a previous 6, we also know that only the first three digits, 179, were engraved when the die was produced. The 15 Stars coins were minted first, followed by the 16 Stars half dimes, and finally the 13 Stars pieces when Mint officials realized they were unable to continually add more stars for new states. They would have eventually run out of room.
This wonderful Mint State piece is boldly defined except for the central obverse and reverse, areas that are always found weak. A single fine scratch crosses the center of the bust, but otherwise both sides are exceptional. The surfaces are mostly brilliant with a peripheral frame of delicate steel and gold toning.
Ex: Heritage (10/2005), lot 478.
