The current coin represents the finest graded 1797 half dime, regardless of variety, that we have offered in nearly 10 years. The NGC Census Report indicates that only one 1797 LM-2 half dime has been certified at the MS64 level with one finer (1/08), although the same report includes another line for this issue that represents unattributed submissions, with an additional 11 examples graded Choice Uncirculated. We must assume that part of that total includes other 1797 LM-2 half dimes. The near-Gem offered here displays an attractive russet patina with steel-blue and silver undertones. The centers are weakly struck as usual for this variety, yet the distraction-free and lustrous surfaces justify the assigned grade.
From The Southwest Collection.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4259)
