Description & Analysis

The mintage of 1795 half dimes includes those dated 1794, but this is by far the more often seen date. A fair number of Mint State pieces survive from an old hoard distributed in the 1880s by coin dealer W. E. Woodward. As a two-year-only type coin, these hoard specimens are highly prized.

Early half dimes are often irregularly struck, with some portions of the design sharp and others quiet weak. This is evident on both Mint State and well worn examples.

Eight obverse dies were paired in various combinations with five reverses to create a total of 10 die marriages. The ones most often seen in high grades are LM-8, -9 and -10. Until publication of the Logan-McCloskey book in 1998 the standard reference for half dimes was Daniel Valentine's 1931 monograph and subsequent updates, and many half dimes that come onto the market from old collections may be attributed by Valentine numbers

Rare varieties for this date include LM-1 and LM-3 through -7, while the rarest of all is LM-2. The coin illustrated is an example of LM-4.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
