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 considerably scarcer. A berry below the upright of the D in UNITED is diagnostic. Electric-blue and slate-gray patina alternates across this sharply detailed and moderately abraded example. A small circular depression is observed above the final star.
From the Fred Miller Collection.(#4259) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4259)
