Listed here for sale are the Early Draped Bust Half Dimes. The silver half dime was the first coin issued under the authority of the United States Mint. The Flowing Hair Liberty type of 1794-95 was short-lived, giving way to the more attractive Draped Bust design in 1796. An old story has it that this bust of Liberty was modeled after Philadelphia society figure Ann Willing Bingham. Certainly, because of this denomination’s storied beginnings, it is a treasured type coin to own.
