Splendid 1797 LM-1 15 Stars Half Dime, AU551797 H10C 15 Stars AU55 NGC. V-2, LM-1, R.3. Four die marriages are known for 1797-dated half dimes, but these exhibit three different obverse star counts. LM-1 is the sole 15 Star variety for the year, and hence merits its own Guide Book listing. Apple-gray and lavender colors proclaim the originality of this pleasing early half dime, which retains most of its original shimmering luster. The centers have minor softness of strike, as is usual for the type, but rub is generally limited to Liberty's drapery. As of August 2008, NGC has certified 23 examples of LM-1 in all grades, but only two in AU55 and nine in higher grades. An extremely important opportunity is presented to the advanced specialist.
