1794 50C O-101a, T-7, R.3, VF20 PCGS. Tompkins Die State 1/5. While this is easily the most available 1794 variety, any 1794 half dollar in problem-free VF condition is scarce and highly sought. Attractive brownish-gray toning blankets both sides of this well-defined VF20 example. The date is sharp and strong despite some Mint-made obverse adjustment marks that run vertically within Liberty's hair and angle up toward the lower-right stars. A few small digs and abrasions visit the right obverse field, although other marks are absent and Liberty's portrait is otherwise smoothly undisturbed. The reverse is sharply defined for the grade, with abundant wing feathers and minor weakness at the eagle's back leg. Die sinking is often seen on late die state coins such as this, although such effects are less prominent than expected here. The dentils are bold and strong rims surround the coin, weakening only where adjustment marks cross the obverse rim. Finding a finer 1794 in VF20 will be a challenging search indeed. HID06601242017
