    Uncirculated V-5 1795 Half Dime

    1795 H10C MS62 PCGS. V-5, LM-8, R.3. This more frequently encountered 1795 variety is occasionally available (as with the present coin) in Mint State. This piece is brilliant throughout and shows several short, lightly colored, diagonal grease stains that were struck into the planchet at the time of manufacture. Just a bit weakly struck in the centers, the surfaces are satiny and minimally abraded. An excellent choice for an untoned type set.
    From the James L. Moore Collection.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22ZV, PCGS# 4251)
