Greg Reynolds at CoinWeek has part 2 of his series on the 1792 Half Disme pattern coins, the first coins minted at the U.S. Mint. In this installment, he discusses at length two of the 1792 Half Dismes that will be auctioned this month, both of which have sold for over a million dollars in the past.

This is a fascinating article, explaining the relationship of these coins with other know survivors, and well worth the read.
