1797 Draped Bust Half Dime. 15 stars. EF-45. Here is another delightfully toned coin that boasts rich yellow, red, blue, gold and green shades on the obverse, and similar bold colors around the reverse periphery. As frequently seen on this type, there are shallow pin scratches in the right obverse field and an even lighter one on her face. Other handling marks are less noticeable, as well as the usual hairlines. As always seen, the central design elements are weakly struck, especially the fine feather details on the eagle.
Certainly worth a strong premium for the superb color and strong hair detail on Liberty.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.
From the Benson collection and purchased May, 1944 from Ira S. Reed for $25.00.

Realized $4,255
