The 1795 LM-10 Half Dime has a unique diagnostic feature that will allow for easy identification. It is the only variety of the year on which the last star (lowest on the right side) has a point attached directly to the tip of Liberty's bust. On all other varieties, the star is either distant from the bust tip or positioned higher on the bust.
The 1795 LM-10 Half Dime is a common variety that can be found in a wide range of grades, including Mint State.
