1797 H10C 15 Stars, V-2, LM-1, R.3, AU50 NGC. CAC. This Almost Uncirculated Draped Bust type coin offers beautiful multicolor toning in concentric rings throughout the margins. The interiors are champagne-gray, and russet appears at the rims. Some strike weakness occurs at the centers as is normal for the variety. Several small strike-throughs (mint-made) can be seen in the reverse fields, and there is a diagonal adjustment mark on the eagle's breast. Half dimes of this date with original patina are rarely so appealing. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a.
