    1795 V-8, LM-7 Half Dime, VF25
    Rare Second-Year Variety

    1795 H10C V-8, LM-7, R.6, VF25 PCGS. CAC. Over the past ten years, Heritage has auctioned just two examples of the 1795 LM-7 half dime, graded Good 6 PCGS and XF45 NGC. The present piece is midway in grade between those two coins, and provides an ideal combination of rarity, quality, and affordability. Most 1795 half dimes are LM-8, LM-9, or LM-10. LM-7 is promptly attributed by the bold bisecting obverse die crack between 1 and 7 o'clock. This cream-gray representative is nicely defined. Marks are minor save for a horizontal line west of star 15 and a small hit above the eagle's right (facing) leg.
    From The Long Island Collection.
