Description

1797 Half Dime, 16 Stars, V-4, LM-2, MS62
The Ed Price/LM Plate Coin

1797 H10C 16 Stars MS62 NGC. Ex: Price/LM Plate. V-4, LM-2, R.4. The Logan-McCloskey plate coin. The first 7 in the date is small, while the second one is quite large. The stars are arranged 9 left and 7 right, and on the reverse there is no outside berry below the D of UNITED. A leaf is quite close beneath the first T of STATES.
The obverse die was first used on this die pairing, then subsequently used on the V-3, LM-3 marriage. On the first use here, extensive die clashing developed, most visible before Liberty's face and above her head. A die crack appears from the rim through star 8. The reverse also is extensively clashed--from the juncture of the top two leaves through the O(F), through and below TES, and above and left of the eagle's left (facing) wing--and cracked, most prominently from the rim down through E of UNITED. A small rim cud connects the dentils over ME.
This is a difficult variety that is seldom seen in Mint State. This piece has much delightful luster remaining on pinkish-gold surfaces. A couple of tiny dark spots and planchet voids are as made and undistracting, in any case, but helping to explain the grade. The centers are fairly weakly struck on each side, but there is little sign of post-strike contact on this fascinating and well-preserved coin.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4259)
