Description

1797 16 Stars Half Dime, Rare Valentine-3 Variety

1797 H10C 16 Stars AU50 PCGS. V-3, LM-3, R.5. Most of the 1797 16 Star Half Dimes are Valentine-4, but this is the rarer of the two die marriages of the Guide Book variety. The Logan-McCloskey book gives similar rarity factors (R.4 for V-4, R.5 for V-3) but based our auction experience, Valentine-3 is many times more elusive. A berry below the upright of the D in UNITED is diagnostic. Rich golden-brown and steel-blue colors lend eye appeal to this attractively detailed piece, which retains considerable mint luster within the devices. Housed in an older green label holder.(#4259) (Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4259)
