    1795 V-4a, LM-10 Half Dime, MS65
    Late Obverse Die State
    Prominent Rim Cud Above TY-Star 9

    1795 H10C V-4a, LM-10, R.3, MS65 NGC. The year 1795 was the second and final for the Flowing Hair motif. The eight 1795 15 Star obverse dies, used in 10 die pairings, were made before Tennessee joined the Union as its 16th state on June 1, 1796. The reported mintage for the 1795 half dimes is 10 times that of the 1794, making it the preferred choice for type collectors. LM-10 is a fairly plentiful variety. This is a desirable late-die-state example, referred to as V-4a in the Daniel Valentine reference, showing a prominent rim cud connecting TY and star 9. Glowing mint luster on both sides with rose-gold centers blends into a subtle interplay of delicate blue and violet shades at the rims of this stunning Gem. Both the obverse hair and eye and the eagle on the reverse show a razor-sharp wealth of sculptural detail. Census (all varieties included): 8 in 65 (1 in 65 ★ Prooflike), 13 finer (4/16).
