    Important MS 64 1795 Half Dime

    1795 H10C MS 64 NGC. V-4, LM-10, R.3. The surfaces are bright with russet, rose, and sea-green toning spread over each side. The obverse displays pinpoint striking definition with complete star radials and full waves of hair. The reverse is almost as well defined, lacking complete detailing only at the top of the eagle's right (facing) wing and over some of the breast feathers on the eagle. The coin has a very satisfying appearance overall, with the only feature that defeats a full Gem grade being a few light adjustment marks on the lower neck of Liberty. Population: 15 in 64, 9 finer (9/99). (NGC ID# 22ZV, PCGS# 4251)

    Weight: 1.35 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
