Exceptional 1797 16 Stars Half Dime, AU58 NGC

1797 H10C 16 Stars AU58 NGC. V-4, LM-2, R.4. This is one of two varieties with 16 obverse stars. LM-2 has a leaf piercing the bottom of C at its center. The other 16 stars variety has a leaf close to the bottom of this letter but not touching. The final 7 in the date is larger than the other digits, and it is broken at the junction of the upright and top. The obverse has parallel cracks from the border to stars 7 and 8, the lower crack continuing into the field between these stars, the upper crack joining the upper outside point of star 8. The reverse has a small rim break in the dentils over ME. Clash marks are visible on both sides. Like nearly every example of the design, this lovely coin has central weakness on both sides with little detail on the eagle. Nearly full luster is visible beneath deep steel-blue color with a slightly lighter appearance on the reverse. The surfaces are exceptional for the grade with only a few faint scratches and blemishes.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4259)
