The most historic United States coin! 1500 were struck in July 1792 under Mint auspices ,in the cellar of John Harper ,before the first mint building was completed.The silver for these was deposited by Thomas Jefferson on July 11,1792. He received the coins on July 13 and then left for Monticello spending the coins for services and also giving some to small children that he encountered. There was probably a second striking of about 500 on or about October 9,1792 . President Washington referred to these coins in his fourth Annual Address to Congress on November 6,1792 as: " There has been a small beginning in the coinage of Half Dimes, the want of small coins in circulation calling the first attention to them ". There are around 250 surviving coins. Obverse well centered; reverse off center toward K-10.5. Obverse has double triangular ding in field under U, another like a comma after Y. Obverse dent at A of PAR. Weak central reverse. Reverse rim dent over TE of STATES. Early die state [ 1- A ] no crack on reverse. EX: Coins & Currency , Inc.
