||HALF DIMES - SEATED LIBERTY, STARS OBVERSE
||NGC MS 67
V-1a but I need more detailed research with better photographs to be absolutely certain. All numerals do touch the base, and the 1 8 is recut (and the 4 may be as well). Also all stars show varying idiosynchrocies. Struck with the sharpness and refined lettering of a proof, but I am not in complete agreement with the grade. The coin is blazing white and there are enough lines in the left obverse field to make me question whether a "*" designation is merited. Bought from John Feigenbaum at David Lawrence November 2004.
