||HALF DIMES - SEATED LIBERTY, NO STARS
||H10C 1837 SEATED
||NGC MS 67
V-2, large date. A well struck, colorfully toned example. The strike is strong with Liberty's features fully detailed. The coin must have been struck in the early usage of these dies as none of the die cracks listed in Valentine are present. There is just the mere hint of a crack beginning to develope from the tip of the shield down past the 1 in the date. The toning is attractive but is more subdued on the obverse and lacks the brilliant luster of the next coin (1837 small date). Bought from Evan Gale at Aspen Park Rare Coins, November 2009.
