1795 Flowing Hair Half Dime. LM-10. Rarity-3. MS-66 * (NGC). CMQ.A breathtakingly beautiful Gem that really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Both sides exhibit stunning peripheral toning that passes through vivid shades of iridescent antique gold, cobalt blue and reddish-apricot before yielding to swirls of brilliance in the centers. The resultant bulls-eye effect is truly impressive. Luster is full with a soft, satiny texture, the surfaces as smooth as would be expected for the assigned grade with no marks or other post-production blemishes of note. The obverse shows some mint-made adjustment, most notably within the hair curls behind Libertys ear and along the upper left border, weakening stars 6 to 8 in the latter area. Otherwise, however, we note bold to sharp definition from a well executed strike.<p>Half dimes were the first denomination struck by the United States Mint. After the "small beginning" of half dismes in 1792, the next issue of half dimes came a couple of years later with the Flowing Hair type designed by Robert Scot. While the dies for the 1794 half dimes were ready by years end, they were not put into service until 1795. All told, 86,416 Flowing Hair half dimes were struck, of which 78,660 were dated 1795. In 1796, the obverse was replaced with the Draped Bust motif.<p><p>With Libertys distinctive flowing hair and the delicate small eagle on the reverse, this design type has long been a favorite among devotees of early American coins. Demand among type collectors has remained steady over the years and has put pressure on the 1795-dated pieces. The denomination saw heavy use in commerce and the vast majority of are found at lower circulated grade levels, and many of these are damaged or otherwise impaired. While PCGS estimates approximately 1,750 pieces are known, less than one-tenth are Mint State and there are even fewer known of this die pairing. Upper end Gems as offered here are in the distinct minority among survivors irrespective of LM number. This numismatic jewel will be a highlight in a top-tier die variety or type collection.PCGS# 4251. NGC ID: 22ZV.NGC Census (all die marriages of the issue): 7, three of which have received a * designation for superior eye appeal; 5 finer (MS-67 * finest).
