What this coin looks like (obverse, reverse, mint mark location, special features, etc.):
1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar
The very first US Half Dollar ever made was produced in 1794 as the Flowing Hair Half Dollar. This coin did not have a denomination indicator such as "50 C." or "Half Dollar" - So the denomination was simply discerned by the diameter size of the coin and the words on the edge of the coin: "FIFTY CENTS OR HALF A DOLLAR". The reverse of the coin features the Small Eagle portrait.
