Lot 1598

1795 Flowing Hair Half Dime. PCGS graded MS-63. A few faint scratches behind the head. Well struck. No adjustment marks and nicely toned. Half dimes of the Flowing Hair type were made only with two dates, 1794 and 1795. Although the dies for 1794 were engraved that year, no half dimes were struck until 1795 due to security arrangements. Today, examples of both years are quite elusive, the 1794 being scarcer. The majority of existing 1795 flowing hair pieces are quite worn, VG to VF or so. Mint State coins, while not exactly rare, in the combination of choice Mint State plus decent preservation, as here, do have importance that cannot be overemphasized (PCGS # 4251) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 14,000.

Realized $13,800
