Description:
The Eliasberg 1830 V-5, LM-9.1 Half Dime, PR65
1830 H10C PR65 PCGS. CAC. V-5, LM-9.1, R.4 for the variety, probably R.7 as a proof. An early die state as is the only other 1830 proof half dime that Heritage has handled in recent years, appearing in our 2007 FUN sale. Although an early die state, the 1830 LM-9 half dimes were actually struck between early and late states of 1831 LM-1. The actual emission sequence was 1831 LM-1.1, 1830 LM-9.1, 1831 LM-1.2, and 1830 LM-9.2. Determining such emission sequences among the early coins is an enjoyable numismatic pursuit.

Only three or four proofs of this variety are known. We are aware of the following:
1. Smithsonian Institution, per Walter Breen.
2. The present piece from the Eliasberg Collection.
3. A PR66 NGC example that we offered in January 2007, earlier from the Benson Collection (Goldberg, 2/2002).
4. An example in Lester Merkin's September 1970 auction, lot 238, that may be the same as number 3.

This piece is housed in an older green label PCGS holder. Both sides are essentially light gray with intermingled gold, lilac, and blue toning in an aesthetically desirable arrangement. The strike is bold and impressive, and the fields are deeply mirrored as on most proofs, although the old collection toning tends to mask the reflectivity. The quality of the strike and the overall preservation is clearly higher than normal business strikes from the old Mint screw press technology. (NGC ID# 27CL, PCGS# 4301)
