1795 Flowing Hair Half Dime. PCGS graded AU-55. This one slipped in to circulation for a brief time, just long enough to get a few tiny handling marks on the fields and devices. We note lovely blue shades around the periphery while the centers are silvery-white. Expect this one to bring a premium for it's superb National Pages album colors and clean surfaces. The strike is typical, weak on the hair curls and the left wing of the eagle. Familiar and common die state with the obverse die cud through TY of LIBERTY and star 9. One for the type collector.
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.
From the Dr. Benson Collection and likely purchased in the 1940s.

Realized $4,428
