Item Description:
The 1792 Half Disme holds a very special place in numismatics. Though many consider it to be a pattern coin, most were circulated. The story behind the coin is that the silver for the minting of these coins was donated from Martha Washington's personal silver setting! In 1792, Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State at the time, took personal delivery of all 1,500 coins minted. It is believed that only around 400 pieces survive to this date. The present coin retains a light silver-gray color and displays a few relatively heavy hits, primarily on the obverse. Housed in a PCGS old green label holder adding to its already off the charts desirability.
