1795 Half Dime, MS63
1795 H10C MS63 PCGS. V-5, LM-8, R.3. One of the more
available 1795 varieties and occasionally available in mint
condition. This is an important variety and it is also known in
copper with a reeded edge. The high quality these coins are
sometimes found in has made it possible for the unscrupulous to
make high quality spark erosion counterfeits -- which are
identifiable by a telltale pit at the top of the 7. The number of
high quality V-5 half dimes is attributable to a hoard of these and
two other varieties that was dispersed by William Elliot Woodward
around 1880, known as the Wadsworth-Rea hoard.
V-5, LM-8, Pleasing Surfaces
This piece shows thick, satiny mint luster over the surfaces that is unbroken in the fields or over the highpoints. The devices are softly struck on both obverse and reverse. Both sides are also evenly toned with light golden-brown color. Other than a well concealed thin mark near the bust truncation, the only other surface interruption is a rim-to-rim die crack from below the 7 through the head of Liberty to the rim above the Y in LIBERTY.
