1794 Flowing Hair Half Dime. NGC graded MS-64 V-4. Well struck with lovely blue and grey toning on both sides. Well detailed for this more difficult early Flowing Hair half dime, a low mintage year, the initial year of the design (and always popular as such), with soft golden-brown highlights plus vibrant blue iridescence that add considerably to the appeal of this nearly gem quality specimen. Close to a landmark offering for the 1794 date! Pop 17; 4 in 65; 1 in 66.

This variety is instantly recognized by a glance at the reverse, where a leaf is merged with the base of the I in AMERICA. The obverse has heavy clash marks while the reverse has cracks through D to the wreath, and from the rim to the right stem, wreath, and eagle's tail.
Estimated Value $40,000 - 45,000.

Realized $48,300
