||HALF DIMES - SEATED LIBERTY, STARS OBVERSE
||H10C 1851 O
||NGC MS 66
A V-1 bought from Augustin Capital, June 2007. Supposedly in this variety (and the V-2 as well) the final 5 1 in the date touch the base of the rock, but frankly while they are close none of the digits actually come in contact with the base. Heavy toning and mottled surfaces obscure some of the detail. But the strike is strong, full head and well defined stars. Average for the grade, with eight coins graded MS-66 out there and one MS-67.
