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

Owner Comments:

Not rare, but beautiful and the finest graded of the date (pop 1 at NGC, 0 at PCGS). Denticles weakly sruck throughout. There is a small die break down from star 13 towards the rim. Judging from the wavy rock base and rounded edge at Liberty's foot, the coin was struck as most of this date were after the die had been retouched and rehardened. What the coin lacks in strike is more than made up for by its stunning eye appeal. Bought from a Heritage auction of the Richard Doyle collection, February 2000, lot 5441.
