Description

Pleasing 1803 Large 8 Half Dime
V-2, LM-3, Choice AU

1803 H10C Large 8 AU55 PCGS. V-2, LM-3, R.3. The Logan-McCloskey plate coin. The 8 is large and a leaf is joined to the left diagonal of the second A in AMERICA, identifying this variety. This was the first use of this reverse, which would then be employed to strike all of the 1805 half dimes. Although this is the most available of the three 1803 varieties, it is still quite scarce in high grades. Logan and McCloskey (1998) write that it is "difficult to obtain in grades above VF," a statement that is supported by the population data from both NGC and PCGS.
Splendid pastel blue and orange-gold patina surrounds the silver-gray centers. The strike is a bit soft, but there are no marks of any significance. Faint clash marks are visible on the obverse. An attractive example with plenty of luster throughout. PCGS does not distinguish between LM-2 and LM-3, so the population does not show the true number of each variety certified. Population: 6 in 55, 12 finer (6/09).
Ex: Ed Price. (Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 2329, PCGS# 4269)

Learn about consigning with us

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
