Ron Guth:

The 1794 Half Dime was the first year that this denomination was made inside the new United States Mint, thus this date carries a premium with type collectors. The 1794 Half Dime has a low mintage and is very scarce in all conditions. However, a number of nice, high-grade examples have survived, including a few Gems.

Varieties (4): Valentine 1 - Very Rare Valentine 2 - Rare Valentine 3 - Rare Valentine 4 - Very Scarce
