Smooth, Appealing Surfaces. Rare in This Grade. The 1794 half dollar is most often seen in heavily circulated grades, frequently with cleaning, tooling, or other impairments. High-end circulated coins are rare, and in this condition there is little room to be choosy when it comes to die variety. This Choice XF coin represents exceptional quality for the issue. The olive-gray surfaces are smooth and unquestionably original, showing lighter patina on the high points of the devices. Strong hair and wing feather detail remains, with wear visible on Liberty's cheek and the eagle's breast. The borders are sharp and free of adjustment marks, although some of the latter are seen within Liberty's hair strands. Only 23 finer (3/18). NGC Price Guide...$39,750. PCGS Price Guide...$51,000.
