You'll have to settle for 18th century from me. 1794 half dime, mintage 7,756.




The 1889 half falls just outside, at 12,000.

I'll give you a pass on the 18th century exception.

I checked and I don't have any -- or one.
But I came close in a couple cases (about 12,000 struck).
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Many Seated quarters and half dollars from the 1880's qualify - must be a lot out there.

True, but they don't seem to be out there. I suspect they never made it out of the mint and into circulation.

Wow. Awesome coins posted. Less than 10,000 minted would be hard to come by without seriously breaking the bank.

If 12,000 is OK, here's the 1889 half dollar.




The survival of the 1880's quarters and halves is high, despite the low mintages. They aren't the stoppers in the series.

Both the 1794 half dime and the 1889 half dollar were coin shop finds. Out of the blue, blind luck.

thq - nice example!

The Seated issues are out there, though often in high grades (AU/MS). I found all of the 1879-1890 quarters without too much difficulty back when I collected the series in the '80s and '90s.
