||HALF DIMES - SEATED LIBERTY, STARS OBVERSE
||NGC MS 68
V-8 from the low position of the date and the loop of the 5 being closed, although I must admit I am not certain. One can get severe eye strain trying to match coins with the photographs in the back of Valentine. As we get on to the final dates in this series the coins start to become more beautiful and of higher grade, but their uniformity makes them numismatically less interesting. There is not a lot to be said about this coin, so I'll just let its strong eye appeal speak for itself. Bought from Joe O'Connor, February 2004.
