The 1794 half dime is an exciting first-year of draped bust type, as well as the first year of the denomination, unless one counts the famed 1792 half dime which is likely a trial piece. NGC has graded just 10 of these in AU50. This coin has a pleasing overall look, with its gunmetal gray appearance. Two light scratches in the face are apparent under magnification, and in our view do not detract from the beauty of this rare piece.
A very underrated issue from a mintage of just 12,447 pieces. Lustrous, orange-golden highlights with nice luster. A first year of type issue and often overlooked as a true first year coin. In the Akers landmark auction survey of Gold Eagles, this date ranks in rarity ahead of several scarce dates, such as 1876, 1879-O, 1873-CC, 1920-S to name a few. Meant for the astute eagle collector.
A pack of 100 $5 Red Seal Legal Tenders, just as you would have received from a bank in the 1960s. An excellent gift idea or a way to introduce new people to old U.S. currency. The notes are between Fine and Extra Fine.
