Description:
1797 15 Stars Half Dime, V-2, LM-1, MS64
Amazing Quality, The Eliasberg Example
1797 H10C 15 Stars MS64 PCGS. CAC. V-2, LM-1, R.3. Ex: Eliasberg. This incredible piece was graded MS65 in the Eliasberg catalog. Although PCGS later assigned it a grade of MS64, it is a coin of amazing quality. The Eliasberg catalog described it thusly: "The obverse and reverse are weak at the centers with strong peripheral detail. Intense frosty light silver luster with mottled pink and green iridescence. A few very minor abrasions are noted with the aid of magnification. To summarize: Wow!"

Variety: V-2, LM-1, R.3.

Population Data (4/14): The 1797 15 Stars half dimes are the most available (Breen would say "least rare") variety of the year. PCGS shows four (including this piece) in MS64 with two finer, one each in MS66 and MS67. The finest at NGC are two submissions in MS66.

Heritage Commentary: The 1797 15 Stars obverse die was undoubtedly prepared for 1797's coinage before Tennessee joined the Union as the 16th state on June 1, 1796. The half dimes of this year are classed as 13 Stars, 15 Stars, and 16 Stars. Although this piece, formerly in the miraculous Eliasberg Collection, is probably fifth in the Condition Census, with a pedigree well over a century long and incredible eye appeal, it is a coin that certainly carries its own credentials.

Provenance: Richard B. Winsor Collection; Chapman Brothers (12/1895); J.M. Clapp; Clapp Estate; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 897.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
