Description:
Select Mint State 15 Stars 1797 Half Dime
1797 H10C 15 Stars MS63 NGC. V-2, LM-1, R.3. Similar to its half dollar counterpart, the Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle half dime was produced for only two years, 1796 and 1797. Mintages were low, and Uncirculated survivors are rare. The present piece is delicately toned in honey-gray hues, and rotation beneath a light reveals satin cartwheel sheen. Unusually clean for the grade with no remotely mentionable marks. Striking softness, usual for the briefly struck type, is noted along Liberty's neck and on the eagle's body and left (facing) wing. All legends are sharp, however, and the right side stars are particularly crisp. LM-1 is the sole 15 stars variety for the date; other die pairings possess 13 or 16 stars.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
