||HALF DIMES - SEATED LIBERTY, STARS OBVERSE
||H10C 1859 O
||NGC MS 66
V-3, the H in HALF does not touch the wreath, there is a die crack on the reverse through the I in AMERICA, and a very light die crack from the right stem of the wreath to the denticles. The collection also includes a V-2 (the H does touch the wreath, the mint mark is more closely centered, and no die breaks are present) graded MS-66 by PCGS. The coin shown has slightly greater eye appeal and a somewhat stronger strike. Bought from Joe O'Connor, November 2003.
