    1797 Half Dime, AU53
    15 Stars, V-2, LM-1

    1797 H10C 15 Stars AU53 PCGS. V-2, LM-1, R.3. The only 1797 marriage with 15 stars. This suggests it was the first variety struck for the year, before a 16th star was added to represent Tennessee, and also before the Mint decision to revert to 13 stars. Otherwise, the small diameter of the half dime would be inundated by stars as the Union expanded westward. This is a lightly toned and exquisite example. Chestnut patina fills the right obverse margin and makes occasional inroads across the otherwise pearl-white surfaces. The centers show incompleteness of strike but the remainder of the coin is bold. Luster shimmers from design elements and no marks are consequential.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
