Owner Comments:

1857 half dimes are common in all grades through MS 65. Mintage for this issue was 7,280,000. Most are poorly struck. This flaw is almost always present in the coins' borders, but Liberty's head and foot are also found less than fully formed. Attempts to correct these problems by retouching the master hub were not successful, and an entirely new one was created in 1859. This example is PCGS MS65 has an average strike and deep blue/grey toning.
