AU58 1794 Half Dime, Ex: Price
1794 H10C AU58 NGC. V-1, LM-1, R.6. Ex: Price. The
Logan-McCloskey plate coin. This is the rarest of the four
varieties for the 1794 half dime. Although the first half dimes
were not struck until February 1795, the earliest group was dated
1794. These first issues are not only extremely desirable, but as a
group they are significantly scarcer than the 1795-dated half
dimes. Of course, an R.6 variety is very rare, no matter the
circumstances. The serious collector should take note of this
uncommonly high-grade representative.
V-1, LM-1, R.6, Late Obverse Die State
Delightful cobalt-blue, rose, tan, violet, and gunmetal-gray toning covers both sides of this carefully preserved piece. The strike is soft in the centers, as often seen, and star 4 is nearly unstruck. Numerous obverse die cracks appear, one nearly bisecting that side laterally and a second running diagonally through the eye to the rim above the right side of the Y in LIBERTY. Flashy luster graces the fields and increases the eye appeal. A noticeable apparent strike-through, as made, runs through the U in UNITED. An important opportunity to obtain a high-grade example of this historic first-year issue.
