Description

Frosty 1797 V-2, LM-1 Half Dime, MS63
15 Obverse Stars

1797 H10C 15 Stars MS63 NGC. V-2, LM-1, R.3. The first 1797 half dimes were the 15 Stars coins, struck early in the year. Today they are the most plentiful of all 1797 half dime varieties, and the easiest to acquire in Mint State grades. This piece has bold design details everywhere except at the center of the obverse and reverse, a result of poor planning on the part of the engraving staff. Deep recesses of the two coinage dies were opposite each other in the press, failing to allow for adequate metal flow to fully bring up the designs. The ivory surfaces have frosty luster with hints of light gold and iridescent toning. Census: 7 in 63, 19 finer (2/09), for all 1797 half dime varieties.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
