    Lightly Worn 1797 Half Dollar Rarity

    1797 50C Half Dollar XF 40 Cleaned, Retoned, Expert Repair Obverse/Reverse SEGS. O-101, R.5. An important coin for the circulated type collector, this coin does, however, display its fair share of problems. There are scattered hairlines throughout and the surfaces display glossy purple-gray toning. In addition, the coin appears to have been holed at one time near the ER in LIBERTY. The plug has been carefully repaired and the toning scheme lessens the visual impact of this impairment. The wear is even and the amount of remaining definition is consistent with the XF level. One of only two years in the Draped Bust half dollar series to use the Small Eagle reverse. (NGC ID# 24EC, PCGS# 6060)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
