What This Coin Looks Like (Obverse, Reverse, Mint Mark Location, Special Features, etc.): 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.
