1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar. O-103, T-10. Rarity-5+. VG Details--Scratch (PCGS).Although less rare than its identically dated Overton-102 counterpart offered above, O-103 still numbers among the more elusive die marriages of the first year 1794 half dollar. The present example exhibits dominant dusky silver patina that yields to warmer sandy-russet highlights around the peripheries. Well centered in strike despite softness along the lower right obverse border, the denticulation is particularly bold and uniform on the reverse. The centers are a bit weak with part of the eagle difficult to discern, although most devices are well outlined to allow ready appreciable of the overall design. Several light scratches in and around the central obverse explain the PCGS qualifier. A challenging die pairing from both absolute and condition standpoints the 1794 O-103, when offered at all, is apt to be in lower grades such as VG and Fine. In fact, there is only a single coin known above VF-30, the marvelous Beistle-"Col." Green-Starr specimen in NGC AU-58. Off the market since the late 20th century, the E. Horatio Morgan specimen is a newcomer to both the Tompkins and Herrman census listings. Tompkins Die Stage 1/1.From the E. Horatio Morgan Collection.
