Lot 1266
1796/5 H10C Genuine, Questionable Color PCGS
V-2, LM-2, R.6. Details of XF. History tells us that the first appearance of the Draped Bust, Small Eagle design was on the silver dollar where two die pairs were engraved and used for coinage late in 1795. The half dime issues may have been next - the numeral 5 of the date in the half dime die was changed to a 6, although the top of the previous 5 clearly shows within the 6, so it would appear that half dimes were planned for release in late 1795 as well.

A rare variety in all grades, particularly so in higher grades. Subdued silver-gray with some questionable color at the border areas. Scattered marks come to light under low magnification, none of them serious enough to deter bidding. The present specimen represents an ideal opportunity to add a popular overdate rarity to your type set or advanced half dime collection. (PCGS 4255)
