1800 H10C MS62 PCGS....
Charming MS62 1800 Half Dime, V-1, LM-11800 H10C MS62 PCGS. V-1, LM-1, R.3. The second 0 in the date nearly touches the lower drapery, and the 1 is quite close to the lowest hair curl. The 8 in the date is the tallest of the digits, with a ropelike appearance caused by thickness of the strokes. (The useful Logan-McCloskey Federal Half Dimes 1792-1837 points out that this is the product of an 8 configured through the use of two small "o" punches.)
This is the most common die marriage of 1800; pieces are available up to Gem Mint State. This charming MS62 example offers light silver-gray surfaces with somewhat muted luster, and splashes of amber patina throughout. Two thin scrapes appear under a loupe in the rear hair details. The strike is fairly well executed, despite some weakness on the upper hair and the eagle's neck.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 2326, PCGS# 4264)
