1794 Flowing Hair Half PCGS Genuine XF Details SOLD
1794 Flowing Hair Half PCGS Genuine XF Details
The half dollar denomination was first minted by the United States in December 1794. With a total mintage of only 23,464 coins, the first year of issue 1794 Half Dollar is in high demand and is a very scarce coin in grades of XF or higher. The example of the 1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar offered here has been certified as Genuine by PCGS with XF Details. PCGS has indicated that this coin has failed to receive a numerical grade because of Tooled surfaces. In looking closely at the coin, it does not appear that there has been any tooling of the devices which is typically done to strengthen the coin's details. Instead, it appears that the fields have been damaged slightly as they show many small rough markings under magnification which may be evidence of work done in the past to smooth out the fields. That said, the coin is a really neat piece with very nice original detail remaining with no other major problems of note. The coin has a mostly even medium to dark grey color when viewed at most angles, but when shined into a direct light the coin comes to life with some golden color and even some brighter pink and magenta. There are a few small dark spots scattered about on each side of the coin, but they aren't as distracting in hand as the photos suggest. Although it is not the perfect XF 1794 Half Dollar, this is a coin with a lot of nice detail and eye appeal.
