Deeply Toned AU58 1797 15 Stars Half Dime1797 H10C 15 Stars AU58 PCGS. V-2, LM-1, R.3. The three different obverse dies used to coin four varieties of 1797 half dimes are quickly identified by the number of stars. In this case, 15 stars are arranged with eight to the left and seven to the right. This darkly toned near-Mint specimen has a lovely combination of steel-blue and deep gold, with nearly complete underlying luster. The central obverse and reverse design motifs are quite weak, as always, while the remaining detail is bold. The obverse die is lightly lapped and the reverse die is moderately clash marked. A splendid example of this important design type. Population: 11 in 58, 16 finer (12/08).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 22ZZ, PCGS# 4258)
Weight: 1.35 grams
Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
