    Select Mint State 1795 Half Dime, V-2, LM-3

    1795 H10C MS63 PCGS. V-2, LM-3, R.5. Several of the usual diagnostics for this variety are quite pronounced on this particular example, including the obverse die crack through R in LIBERTY and the reverse die scratches between ES in STATES that extend down to the second leaf below. This example is conditionally noteworthy as well, since the Logan-McCloskey reference states: "A scarce die marriage that is difficult to obtain, particularly in mint state." Boldly struck on the central design elements, with clockwise die rotation noted on the order of forty-five degrees. Liberty's lowest hair curls and the first three obverse stars are softly struck, and rather heavy adjustment marks (as made) are observed on the left side of the reverse. The satiny surfaces exhibit pale ice-blue color in the fields, with minimal post-striking marks on each side. (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 22ZV, PCGS# 4251)
