What this coin looks like (obverse, reverse, mint mark location, special features, etc.):
1795 Liberty Cap Half Cent Penny - Puncuated Date - Plain Edge

One major variety of the 1795 Liberty Cap Half Cent (Penny) features a Punctuated Date and also have a Plain Edge. The punctuated date looks like a large comma between the 1 and 7 in the 1795 date. This was not intentional but rather was the result of a die defect. An example image of this is depicted above.

In addition: This variety has a plain smooth edge around the coin. Some coins have a lettered edge but the thinner coins were too thin to have letters on them so they left them plain.
