Description

Very Rare PR66 1830 Half Dime

1830 H10C PR66 NGC. V-5, LM-9.1, R.7 as a proof. Proof 1830 half dimes are extremely rare. As of (9/06), NGC has certified only two, the present piece and another as PR64. An additional PCGS PR65 creates a total third-party census of three examples. One of these proofs (although not the present piece) may be the Eliasberg specimen, which was uncertified in its 1996 auction appearance. Over the years, any number of prooflike pieces have been offered as proofs, but the status of the current lot is unquestioned. The portrait is thickly frosted, and the eagle is also icy, despite the presence of original golden-brown peripheral toning. The strike is needle-sharp, and the fields are flashy. A couple of trivial hairlines near star 2 and a pinpoint spot at 7 o'clock decide the grade.
Ex: Long Beach Connoisseur Collection (Bowers and Merena, 8/99), lot 79, which realized $18,400; Benson Collection, Part II (Ira and Larry Goldberg, 2/02), lot 350, which realized $23,172.
From The Jones Beach Collection. (NGC ID# 237N, PCGS# 4301)
