1795. NGC graded VF-30. Nice light grey toning on both sides with pleasing smoothness in the fields (only one very minor nick in the field above the third star). Better still are the rims, whose choice unmarred features gives this lovely flowing hair 1795 half a boost in the eyes of the collector. An undernourished looking scrawny eagle graces (if "grace" is the correct term) the first two years of the half dollar, 1794-95. It has long curving wings which cross behind and over the wreath. The legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the only legend on this side of the coin. Where is the denomination? That can be found along the rim where incuse letters read FIFTY CENTS OR HALF A DOLLAR. (The grading holder make it impossible to see this feature, regrettably.) (PCGS # 6052) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,400.
