1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-102, T-8. Rarity-6+. Good Details--Cleaned (PCGS).With the date legible, if soft, and most other major design elements boldly outlined and fully appreciable, this is an eminently collectible example of an elusive die pairing. Blended pewter and silver gray patina to both sides, a particularly heavy concentration of hairlines in and around the central obverse explains the PCGS qualifier. The aforementioned softness to the date, which extends right along the border to involve stars 11 to 15, is typical of this die pairing as "most examples found will be weakly struck at the lower half of the obverse" (per Tompkins, 2015). The 1794 Overton-102 is a rare variety with only 14 to 15 coins extant in all grades, per both Steve M. Tompkins and Stephen J. Herrman, the latter in the Spring 2019 revision to his <em>Auction & Mail Bid Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars: 1794-1839</em>. The present example from the E. Horatio Morgan Collection is a newcomer to the Tompkins and Herrman census listings, making its first appearance in the numismatic auction market of the 21st century.
