Description

Splendid 1797 16 Stars Half Dime XF45

1797 H10C 16 Stars XF45 PCGS. V-4, LM-2, R.4. The variety is confirmed by the outer berry on the left wreath being located between the N and I of UNITED. This attractive example comes from a later die state, with die clashing evident in the obverse fields, a small linear crack between stars 7 and 8 on the obverse, and a horizontal crack through E in UNITED on the reverse, with evidence of an additional crack through D perpendicular to the aforementioned crack faintly developing. Softly struck over the central devices, as nearly always, and naturally highlighted in golden and pastel blue shades. Varieties with 15, 16, and 13 stars were struck with 1797-dated dies; apparently the Mint decided mid-year it was impractical to crowd the obverse with stars to represent each newly admitted state and returned to 13 stars, which represent the original colonies. Population: 1 in 45, 21 finer (11/04).
From The Krist Collection.(#4259) (Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4259)
