    1795 Half Dime, Fine 15
    V-5, LM-8, Flowing Hair Type Coin

    1795 H10C V-5, LM-8, R.3, Fine 15 NGC. The absence of an inner or outer berry below the U in UNITED, and star 9 away from the Y in LIBERTY serve as diagnostic indicators for the V-5, LM-8 die variety. This second-year Flowing Hair representative served its intended role in commerce and shows considerable wear. Nevertheless, outlines of the legends, including the date, and the central elements remain strong. Smooth deep gray surfaces with a handful of planchet flaws.
    From the Lake County Collection.
