1797 Draped Bust Half Dime. LM-1, V-2. Rarity-3. 15 Stars. EF-40 (PCGS). An attractive EF for the circulated type collector, both sides are veiled in warm, mostly even, rose-gray patina. Generally bold in strike, only in the center of the reverse do we see characteristic (for the type) softness of strike. There are no worrisome abrasions or other significant blemishes.
