    1794 V-4, LM-4 Half Dime, MS62
    Struck in 1795

    1794 H10C MS62 NGC. CAC. V-4, LM-4, R.4. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The Philadelphia Mint began production of silver coins in October 1794, beginning with silver dollars and continuing with half dollars in December. However, the 1794 half dimes were actually minted in 1795. The Mint delivery dated March 30, 1795, included 7,756 half dimes, and those were the first of the denomination struck at the new government facility. (The 1792 half dismes were not struck inside the Mint.) Today, that figure is accepted as the mintage for 1794 half dimes, although some of those might have been dated 1795. The V-4, LM-4 die marriage is the most frequently encountered 1794 variety.

    The Eric P. Newman specimen is a splendid Mint State piece with satin luster beneath deep bluish-gray patina and hints of gold overtones. The surfaces are essentially mark-free and the devices are boldly detailed. The obverse has heavy clash marks and a bisecting die crack from star 10 to Liberty's nose, ear, hair curls, and on to star 4 and the border. The reverse has several delicate die cracks. Census: 8 in 62, 41 finer (10/13).

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
