1792 Half Disme, Judd-7, Pollock-7, Logan-McCloskey-1, Rarity-4, NGC MS-64

This exciting virtual Gem example of the first silver coin of the new United States boasts deep blue toning with enticing gold highlights that bathes both sides in the gunmetal splendor of antique silver. All obverse detail is crisply defined, notably the intricate hair that cascades down her head and wraps around her shoulders. Liberty is surrounded by the legend LIB. PAR. OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY, a motto suggestive of the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. The reverse presents an eagle flying l. within the legend UNI. STATES OF AMERICA over the boldly stated denomination HALF/ DISME. This coin displays a marvelous strike free of the usual weakness on the highest points.
