Item Description:
A perfectly wholesome Fine example of this scarcer early Half. The 16th star on the obverse was engraved to commemorate Tennessee's admission to the Union as the 16th state. Lovely details with choice surfaces, the luster is still noticeable in the fields. Perfect for the type collector, this piece is clearly easy on the eyes and destined for a very advanced cabinet.
