Description & Analysis

This is the key date in the series of early half dimes and one of the great rarities in American numismatics. Perhaps three dozen are known in all grades, most of them quite worn and/or damaged. The example illustrated is one of the finest survivors.

A single pair of dies was used to produce this limited mintage. The obverse is quite distinctive in that numeral 8 of the date was formed by overlapping two small zeros.
