Description

Rare 1797 13 Stars Half Dime, XF45
V-1, LM-4, R.6.

1797 H10C 13 Stars XF45 PCGS. V-1, LM-4, R.6. The 13 stars variety is the rarest of four known 1797 half dime varieties, and it was struck after all the others. We know this since the 15 and 16 Stars varieties were coined when the Mint felt they could keep adding stars for new states. Late in 1796 they reverted back to 13 stars for the original 13 states. Imagine today having to place 50 stars on the obverse of a coin the size of this piece.
This pleasing example has some minor scratches and abrasions beneath deep gray-gold and iridescent toning. Bold clash marks at the top of the obverse add to its desirability. An extremely important coin, this specimen will make a nice addition to the specialist's cabinet. Population: 3 in 45, 5 finer (9/12).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4260)

This is a most satisfied customer's testimonial of a true gentleman in today's era. It is rare that one encounters through the course of life a person which one has read in childhood' s classics or seen in movies of old.
