1797 Draped Bust Half Dime NGC MS62

Rare, Mint State

Three distinct obverse design subtypes exist for the 1797 half dimes, featuring 13 stars, 15 stars, or 16 stars. This, the 15 Stars variety, has an arrangement of eight stars to the left and seven stars to the right. It is clearly the most plentiful of the three, and yet, only a few hundred examples survive in all grades, mostly well worn, damaged, or both. Only a few dozen Mint State examples are thought to exist. The NGC population is a mere 1 with 4 higher. When tilted just slightly under a light, this specimen is much lighter, as well as more colorful and lustrous than seen in our images.
