Pleasing 1805 Half Dime, V-1, LM-1, AU58

1805 H10C AU58 PCGS. V-1, LM-1, R.4. The 1805 half dime is an extremely scarce issue, with a reported mintage of 15,600 pieces produced from a single known die pairing. It is the last Heraldic Eagle Reverse issue, since the next striking of half dimes would not occur until 24 years later, of the Capped Bust design by Chief Engraver William Kneass. The Logan-McCloskey half dime reference (1998) indicates that the 1805 is "rare in grades above VF and almost never available in grades approaching Mint State."
The present near-Mint State offering is the finest grade one can expect to locate, as a single Mint State specimen has thus far been certified. A splash or two of violet visits the predominately soft olive-green obverse, while the two colors show about equal coverage on the reverse. A sharply struck and remarkably clean example. Population: 4 in 58, 0 finer (12/09).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 232A, PCGS# 4272)
