NGC US Coin Census for Seated Liberty Half Dimes (1837-1873)

Owner Comments:

V-2 from the position of the date. A multi-hued, sparkling beauty with no obvious imperfections. Pop 6 at NGC with two others (one of which is in this collection) at PCGS. None rated higher. While the coin itself is beautiful, the date is not very interesting, eliciting no comments from Valentine or Blythe. David Bowers when cataloguing the coin for auction (Baltimore, November 2002, lot 1177) simply noted, "Needle sharp. Rather spectacular to view." Al Blythe rated the date an undemanding R4 despite a relatively low mintage of 88,600 coins.
