1796 Draped Bust Half Dime - LIKERTY
One major variety is the 1796 "LIKERTY" Draped Bust Half Dime. This variety deals with the word "LIBERTY" on the top of the obverse of the coin - particularly with the letter "B". The top and bottom of the letter "B" had a weak strike which made the letter look like a letter "K" with curled arms as depicted in the example image of the coin above.
