1792 Half Disme, VF Details
1792 H10C Judd-7, Pollock-7, R.4 -- Damage -- PCGS Genuine. VF
Details. Conformed to the Mint Act of 1792 and the first
Federal issue of the United States (even though struck before the
first Mint was built), this early half disme was clearly meant for
circulation. Listed both as a pattern and as a regular circulation
coin, between 1,500 and 2,000 pieces were minted.
Judd-7, Historic Federal Issue
Perhaps 200 to 300 pieces remain, and this example is typical of most survivors. They are in general a rag-tag group, often in low grade showing many years in circulation and all sorts of transgressions. Many were holed and later plugged. The present coin shows numerous obverse scratches and is bent, but otherwise has nice sharpness remaining. A pleasant silver-blue color covers the surfaces with deep gunmetal-blue accents around the devices.(Registry values: P9) (NGC ID# 946T, PCGS# 11020)
