1800 H10C LIBEKTY AU50 NGC....
Desirable 1800 LIBEKTY Half Dime, AU501800 H10C LIBEKTY AU50 NGC. V-2, LM-3, R.4. The collectible LIBEKTY variety, since its alternative, LM-4, is extremely rare. The letter punch for R had a broken upper crossbar when it was selected by obverse die engraver, and with a little imagination it resembles the letter K. The variety is sometimes confused with the 1796 LIKERTY, caused by a broken and softly impressed B punch. Of course, any 1800 half dime is desirable, as a representative of the difficult Draped Bust, Heraldic Reverse type. The present example will be warmly welcomed by bidders, since it is splendidly detailed and displays attractive cream-gray, golden-brown, and cobalt-blue patina. From a later state with localized die failure beneath the eagle's beak, as made.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 2326, PCGS# 4265)
