V-4, LM-2 1797 16 Stars Half Dime, AU581797 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, while the other 16 stars variety has a leaf close to the bottom of this letter but not touching. Clash marks are visible on both sides.
Like nearly every example of the design, this lovely coin has central softness on both sides with little detail on the eagle. Impressive 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, as well as the minor rub that precludes a Mint State designation. For the 16 Stars varieties combined, Census: 1 in 58, 7 finer (6/10).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4259)
